When you use -movflags +faststart, FFMPEG muxes the file, then muxes it again, moving all the metadata about all packets to the beginning of the file.

However, when it comes to Matroska, using -reserve_index_space, one has to mux it manually, and then get the error, using the info given in the error, mux it again with the right value for reserved space.

Is there a way to optimize it, like -movflags +faststart and let FFMPEG choose what space is necessary and automate it?

There is no emoji in Unicode to express my feelings. Perhaps, 😂 will suffice.
