Comment (by thanpolas):

 You need to be more diligent when reading reports. As I am stating in my
 original post, the error generated reads:

 Unsupported codec with id 0 for input stream 2

 The process exits with Code 1 which in turn is propagated in the
 underlying controlling method in our application and thus the whole
 operation fails.

 We can find multiple workarounds to this issue like downgrading the ffmpeg
 error to just a warning vs stopping our whole OP but I thought it would be
 a good idea to bring this to your attention.
