forgot: so matter what, your webserver *never* excutes such stuff
directly so it's always some sort of crojob or systemd service starting
with "while(true)" no matter what language and using as much as possible
restricitons and namespaces

smart web applications feed databases which are the source of
services/cronjobs nd so any call to ffmpeg is *always* local

if someone don't disallow exec and friends on a webserver he deserves to
be purged - yeah, it's often more work but security don't come for free
