So, even though I corrected the usage of the flag, I am still unable to
play the output
file before ffmpeg finishes the transcoding :( :(

$ ~/bin/ffmpeg.d/ffmpeg -i video_Z11.mp4 -movflags faststart -vb 8000k -ab
384k -s 1920x1080 -y video_Z11-1920x1080.mp4

That usage is still not correct.  It should be:

-movflags +faststart

You are forgetting the + symbol before the word faststart.
