By default ffmpeg sends a whole lotta messages to stderr: when built, how built, codecs, etc, etc, etc.
How can I make it quieter?
-v 0 (and
-v 10 since the documentation just coyly says
Set the logging verbosity level. with no indication of what the range of inputs is) -- still not quiet.
-loglevel quiet -- still not quiet.
I should mention, I'm looking for "quieter," not "no output ever". If there's an error I want to see it, but I don't need to hear about ffmpeg's configuration every. single. time.
