that is a terrible bad idea and unlikely works
what should ffmpeg do with the output in the meantime?
hold it in memory since it can't write to the sourcefile

nosense, you don't need 3 steps
* ouput to temp-file
* atomic mv to the source name
that's also safe in case the conversion get interrupted and makes sure
you damage the source file and is typicall a 1-liner "ffmpeg params &&
mv tmp sourcename"
