This is exactly what i need. Thank you.

Btw, you're saying that my ffmpeg version is old, but I've done a yum install ffmpeg from my CENTOS 6.5.
Is there any reason why I don't get  the latest version?

Hello Thibault,

A good way to parse the progression of conversion is not to take the
console output, but to use the "-progress <file|url>" option instead.

$ ffmpeg -loglevel error -progress myconversion.log [...]

You will see the error message on the console, and you can separately
parse the log file myconversion.log, which has all the values nicely
lined up in variable=value lines, much easier to parse.

I must emphasize that your very old version of ffmpeg probably doesn't
support the "-progress" option. As Carl Eugen pointed out, it may even
have security issues. Please get hold of the latest release, or of a
build of git master, or build it yourself.
