I downloaded the "original", i.e. file as hosted by Facebook using youtube-dl, and I don't see any corruption at all. Not until I went to the webpage in a browser did I understand what you mean. What you are seeing is not the first frame, it is an automatically generated static preview image, which *may* be a snapshot of the first frame, or whatever you tell Facebook to use. My guess is that Facebook's preview image generator has an issue with this pixel format: > Stream #0:0: Video: h264 (libx264) (avc1 / 0x31637661), > yuv444p10le(progressive), 1920x1080 [SAR 1:1 DAR 16:9], q=-1--1, 25 fps, > 12800 tbn, 25 tbc (default) i.e. yuv444p10le. You can be really glad that they do process the video properly, considering 10-bit content (or even anything but yuv420p/yuv422p) was often not understood, not so long ago. You may want to reconsider your pixel format, and whether that's really required for the video content you are presenting. If "anything" is fine, just add "-pix_fmt yuv420p" to your ffmpeg output options (or experiment with other 8-bit formats such as yuv444p). Alternatively, you might be able to upload a separate preview image. I can't recall whether Facebook offers that (too lazy to try), I do know YouTube does.

And libx264 thereby defaults to crf=23.0, which may not be what you intended to achieve.
