If you show an unscripted command and the complete console output there
may be more to suggest.

I'm assuming the output is MP4, but the scripting hides that. Scripts
are not supported here because they often don't show everything and add
unnecessary complexity.

You didn't indicate where you're uploading this to or how the output
will be viewed. If the MP4 output is going to be viewed via progressive
download you can add the "-movflags +faststart" output option; otherwise
the file will have to be completely downloaded before playback can
begin. If it's for YouTube or some other service that will re-encode it
you don't need this option.
