 Summary of the bug:

 The progress line in FFmpeg 3.4.1 on macOS/Homebrew requires at least ~110
 columns wide terminal, or else the line will be repeated and flood the
 terminal each time they are printed (quite annoying!)

 frame= 1073 fps=106 q=28.0 size=    3840kB time=00:00:43.02 bitrate=
 731.1kbits/s dup=1 drop=0 speed=4.24x

 Suggestion: Given each element a priority, so that when the window
 shrinks, the elements disappear intelligently one by one (1=Stays longest,
 9=Goes first)

 4 frame= 1073
 6 fps=106
 5 q=28.0
 2 size=    3840kB
 1 time=00:00:43.02
 3 bitrate= 731.1kbits/s
 8 dup=1
 9 drop=0 7
 7 speed=4.24x
