#6942 closed defect (duplicate)

Progress line repeats on narrow terminal windows

Analyzed by developer: no


Summary of the bug:

The progress line in FFmpeg 3.4.1 on macOS/Homebrew requires at least ~110 columns wide terminal, or else the line will be repeated and flood the terminal each time they are printed (quite annoying!)

frame= 1073 fps=106 q=28.0 size=    3840kB time=00:00:43.02 bitrate= 731.1kbits/s dup=1 drop=0 speed=4.24x  

Suggestion: Given each element a priority, so that when the window shrinks, the elements disappear intelligently one by one (1=Stays longest, 9=Goes first)

4 frame= 1073
6 fps=106
5 q=28.0
2 size= 3840kB
1 time=00:00:43.02
3 bitrate= 731.1kbits/s
8 dup=1
9 drop=0 7
7 speed=4.24x

Duplicate of ticket #2349 (I do not really understand how this can be relevant on osx but for small console windows it is reproducible on all systems).

It's relevant because you may keep your terminal "narrow" (~80 columns) eg. to fit a tiled desktop layout, and FFmpeg is the only terminal program that forces me to expand it to prevent this annoyance.
