Hi there,

I have created with Perl and FFmpeg transcode service on my server.
All files in placed in a certain folder are queued for transcoding.
What I'm missing is a kind of progress bar.
Is there a way to retrieve the status of ffmpeg transcoding like fps or
better percentage finished by querying to active process.
I mean other than something like this.
current filesize of destination file/(media length in sec of source
*(audio bitrate+video bitrate))

And idea is nice.

yours sincerely,
