Making ffmpeg truly quiet (non verbose)

ffmpeg is a great program, but can be rather verbose in it's output. This can be problematic if you're trying to use ffmpeg in a script. The best way to make ffmpeg truly silent in it's output is with the following options:

ffmpeg -hide_banner -loglevel error ...

This will hide the startup banner, and any encoding stats. Assuming your encode goes normally you shouldn't get any output at all.
