Following on from what Moritz said, it looks like you've entered your
output parameters BEFORE the source filename.
You want the equivalent of ffmpeg -i INPUT -c copy output

With the options you've selected, you appear to be outputting:
ffmpeg -c copy -i INPUT OUTPUT

As i'm not sure of how familiar you are with ffmpeg, please take a
look at this page, as using -c copy will only copy over one video,
audio, subtitle stream
