A command line program that runs an FFmpeg command and shows the following in addition to the FFmpeg output:

  • Percentage Progress
  • Speed
  • ETA (minutes and seconds)

Example: Progress: 25% | Speed: 22.3x | ETA: 1m 33s


python3 -c "ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -c:a libmp3lame output.mp3"

I have also included a function, which can be imported and used in your own Python program or script:

run_ffmpeg_show_progress("ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -c:a libmp3lame output.mp3")
