Before doing anything else refer to /var/log/pacman.log and try to
narrow down the culprit. Right now I'm not sure if ffmpeg has anything
to do with it (but I know nothing of kmsgrab).

Unfortunately you used the accursed -hide_banner option which often
damns the user into getting no response because it hides important
info and makes the log not usable.

I prefer the default loglevel and that the log is provided directly in
the email in case the link goes away.
