I have a number of video files which I need to re-encode to mpegts format. I've got most of this sorted except that when served by my DLNA server and played on a client any attempt to pause, fast forward or rewind stops playback altogether and drops me back to the title selection list. However if I change the output format to matroska and then use tsMuxeR, pause, fast forward, rewind are fine when played on my DLNA client so my assumption is that there is some information missing from the video stream when processed by ffmpeg that tsMuxeR is adding. ffmpeg command line is

ffmpeg -i infile -vcodec libx264 -preset medium -tune film -crf 22 -x264opts force-cfr:fps=25 -g 15 -acodec ac3 -f mpegts outfile.ts

My question is what extra information is tsMuxeR adding and can this be added as part of the recode with ffmpeg as I would prefer to use as few steps as possible.

If the above is completely wrong please point me in the right direction.
