Kill it nice then. This is inevitable with mp4 format, which adds the
moov atom once it has finished doing everything else with the file -
if you kill it uncleanly, you do not give ffmpeg a chance to add the
atom, and you end up with a bust file.

Alternatively, use a container format that does not have this
restriction, like mpeg-ts.
