 This looks like either a bug in design or some configuration mistake: a
 large filtergraph (I'm stiching small pieces of several streams together,
 the filtergapth is > 200KB) makes the process run for like 60 hours (with
 the [correct] result just over 200MB).

 You're welcome to examine the offending filtergraph here:

 I'm willing to try things if you have any clue, so, any help is greatly

 p.s. if you're wondering how this filtergraph is generated, see the Ruby
 FFmpeg-micro-engine gem: https://rubygems.org/gems/ffmprb
