That's not correct. As a Unix shell only has stdout and stderr, there's
nowhere else that output could be. Technically said: Both ffmpeg and
the libraries it calls into share the same stdout and stderr. So if you
capture those, it will contain what you see on the console.

But you asked about the FFREPORT feature, and *that* does not contain
libx265's output. (It's not a copy of stdout or stdout+stderr, it's
an additional target for ffmpeg's log functions.)
