 Sorry for the delay in replying.  Your suggestion worked perfectly.

Hi Craig,

Because you didn’t get a response that I’m aware of, I’m sending one.

This might include the information you want in its output file, but you may need to otherwise process the output to format it as you described.
(Use “-y” if you don’t mind overwriting “chapters.txt”.)

ffmpeg -y -loglevel error -i input -f ffmetadata chapters.txt
