Please include the an actual, unscripted ffmpeg command and complete console output. Is the image always going to be the same? Please include some info about the image, such as with: ffmpeg -i input.png.

comment FFmpeg losing video track in multi-channel input
1) Questions not about programming are off-topic at [so]. I recommend deleting this question and asking it at [su]. 2) I don't see the actual error anywhere. You should include the complete ffmpeg console output.

Impossible to answer without seeing your actual script and without the complete ffmpeg console/log output.

comment What H.264/H.265 video compression parameters provide DVD-equivalent quality with better compression?
+1 on mentioning recent builds since old ones may not set the correct number of -refs for libx264 as defined by the desired -level (old bug 3307, and one other one IIRC).

comment Ffmpeg, avconv and sameq
You can't achieve "same quality" when using a lossy encoder, but you can give it enough bitrate that it sounds the same. For MP3 use -b:a or -q:a as shown in FFmpeg MP3 Encoding Guide (may not apply to avconv).

See What is the -sameq or -same_quant option in FFmpeg? Does it mean “same quality”?

comment FFMpeg No such filter (filter empty) ... how to know it?
I'm assuming the negative vote was due to your question being off-topic, because [so] is for programming questions only. ffmpeg cli usage questions are on-topic at [su].

comment FFmpeg MP4 to FLV too slow
Why do you recommend removing -crf when using a -preset? If removed, then the default of -crf 23 will be used.

comment ffmpeg 2.4.2 concatenate mp4 files
Your command in your question uses the concat protocol. Your command in your answer uses the concat demuxer. These are different.

comment How can I properly concatenate mpeg files on my Linux box?
[so] is off-topic for questions not involving programming (I think I've mentioned this on several of your questions here). [su] is on-topic for ffmpeg cli usage questions. You should delete this question and ask it at [su].
