 This is fixed by using the "-y" switch, which basically tells ffmpeg to write to the given target, regardless of whether it already exists or not, skipping the read-check. This is fixed by using the "-y" switch, which basically tells ffmpeg to write to the given target, regardless of whether it already exists or not, skipping the read-check.

 +IF FFmpeg is transcoding too slow, which is often the case even on relatively new computers with 720p/1080p content, the "-intra" option significantly speeds up compression at the expense of file size and quality.  This is not necessarily an issue with gigabit/802.11N networks, where you can boost your bitrate to compensate.  Intra disables motion estimation completely (you have only I-frames, which means compression is about as good as JPEG compression).  This also works if using FFmpeg within VLC.
