Error Code:

Incorrect Timecode


"Incorrect Timecode" is the improper formatting or corruption of a timecode track or frame rate.


Incorrect Timecode impacts the Technical Quality of the asset. Member experience will not be affected however the interaction with our internal systems may be compromised should an incorrect timecode track be delivered. This would be a timecode track starting at anything not conforming to the Netflix Specification. Assets derived from this piece may contain incorrect timecode.

Severity Structure:




Timecode of secondary asset does not match primary or is corrupted. 

IMF is delivered with embedded timecode information.  IMF should not include any embedded timecode, as it does not rely on timecode as a format.

How to Prevent:



Asset must have timecode track correctly formatted and re-delivered.

Embedded timecode should be removed from IMF and re-delivered.
