I have a script that launches FFmpeg and captures the output (stdout w/

In an older version (sorry not certain which one) I used "-v 0" to
suppress the many lines of progress information, while still capturing
the details about the FFmpeg version, file info and any warnings/errors.

Now with "-v 0" (or "-loglevel quiet") I get no output, as you might expect.

"-loglevel info" and above shows the FFmpeg and file info, but also
includes the progress output.

"-loglevel warning" and below shows nothing. (I assume it will show
warnings and errors if there are any.)

Is there a way to show the info level output, but suppress the progress
