ffmpeg output messages

jd1008
Hi all,
(using  ffmpeg version 4.2.2 Copyright (c) 2000-2019 the FFmpeg developers).
what does it mean when ffmpeg (during transcode)
belches out:
bitrate=1366.8kbits/s dup=0 drop=133  speed=0.404x

So, if there were 0 duplicates, why drop 133 frames?
And what does the message mean?
Should I specify a higher fps?

Duplication and dropping are two opposite mechanism, though both can
happen in the same conversion. Dupes are to fill for missing frames,
drops are to remove expendable frames.

It really depends on what you were doing, Could you kindly show us the
actual command line used, and the complete console output?

Again, it depends on what you are doing, and what you need to achieve.

Cheers,
