Thanks Michael for the recommendation.  Spaces removed; however, same error. 

set /p filename="Enter Unconverted File Name: "
set /p outputfilename="Enter Converted File Name: "
CALL "C:\ffmpeg\bin\ffmpeg.exe" "C:\ffmpeg\bin\ffmpeg -i %filename% %outputfilename%"

As you can see here, the input filename is missing in the command string.
Try removing the space characters left and right of = in the set commands. Please note that you have no space character left of = in the second set command. This may be the difference why this line works.
