This code doesn't calculate progress, because it doesn't have direct or
indirect knowledge of how long the video will be. This would require
understanding filters which alter the timeline or speed (fps),
understanding "-r" input and output options, and timeline options such
as "-ss" and "-t". Too complicated here. ;-)
