Well, when the download script runs in a user terminal there is constant output
to stdout from *ffmpeg*. But that is not visible when I run it in an at job
since it has no terminal (at least not visible).
And I have no say over what ffmpeg is logging or where, right?

So where do I find the output of the at job which ran a few hours back?

I have tried (after googling) the following locations but no dice:

Since the output is a *lot* when run in a terminal I assume Ubuntu will not keep
all of it, at least not for very long, even if it is saved somewhere...
