    Resolution Note (fix version 2022.1):

    Every file had an unknown color standard. To remove the warning, you should check how to add the color standard in the file while editing or recording. You can use FFmpeg to add it, but you have to reencode your file, lowering the quality. Use and customize this command for your need.

    ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -color_primaries bt709 -color_trc bt709 -colorspace bt709 -color_range pc -vcodec libx264 output.mp4

    We reduced redundant warnings, so you should see only one per file.
