Just looking at the error message from bash, I wonder if it might be 
interpreting "ffmpeg -re" as a single filename.  Are you sure there is a 
space, and not some other blank character, between "ffmpeg" and "-re"?

Or, it could be that Bash is truncating your command line when it 
presents the error message.

Consider posting your exact command line and your entire uncut console 
output here. Then you might discover whether you left something out of 
your original post.

Also, try your command again, but with "--loglevel verbose" before the 
"-re". The resulting log will show how FFmpeg is interpreting your 
parameters. That might turn up a misspelling or something.

Best of luck!
