why do you quote the list footer?

let me guess: ubuntu user?

and you can 100% assure that the *input files* for ffmpeg never trigger 
any serious bug leading in possible damage (by wrong quoting of path, 
the input file itself or whatever) or are from sources doing that by 
intention in the hope someone proceeds them like you do?

the basic principle is don't run anything with more privileges than 
needed for the task and *argue about that* instead say "thank you" is 
just idiotic

only a fool writes "sudo" in front of everything he does
only a completly fool argues about that it's bad practice
