Description

Like the y options, there should be another option to skip the file without prompting,

e.g. if we already have a file named test.mp4, then the current behavior of ffmpeg is to ask if one should overwrite the file or not, I suggest, there should be an options -N which will skip the file instead of overwriting without prompting for it.

sample command line -

ffmpeg -i '/home/de/media_writeit!/temp(others)/commercials/Banned Commercials - Funny - Bowling.mpeg' -vf scale='trunc((240*a)/2)*2:240' -threads 16 -b:v 400k -r 25 -vcodec libxvid -aq 6 -acodec libmp3lame ~/test.avi

File '/home/de/test.avi' already exists. Overwrite ? [y/N]

I know the existing bash workarounds, but GUI frontends like ffmpeg can't do that.

  • Keywords skip without asking removed
  • Resolution set to fixed

I added option "-n" which implements not overwriting existing output files.
