I have written an Automator Service that calls ffmpeg, encodes the selected files in Finder, then sends a notification via Growl to Prowl on iOS.

It all works, but I'd like to be able to view the progress of the ffmpeg encode. Is there an easy way to see the ffmpeg process in a Terminal window when it runs?

  • AFAIK With Automator, you'd need to use a Run AppleScript action with Terminal and a do script command. That would then have a visible Terminal window showing the output of what's run by the do script command. – user3439894 Jan 3 at 13:19
