I'm talking about the fact that on FAT32 volumes, atomic replacement is 
not possible, so the writer/user can't ensure that.
Even on NTFS, the user may not be replacing the file via win32 API calls 
of their choosing.

And the filter tolerates no failures; the OP is experiencing premature 
ffmpeg termination. It shouldn't be that fragile.
