Summary of the bug:

ffprobe appears to be sending normal output to stderr, rather than stdout. This breaks with Unix convention.

How to reproduce:

$ ffprobe -hide_banner foo.m4v

That is not the "output" of ffprobe, that is only debug info, therefore correctly forwarded to stderr.

Use ffprobe -show_streams, to get proper ffprobe output.
