comment Why does my system shut down when running ffmpeg?
That does not rule out overheating which a few users have claimed to experience when performing CPU intensive commands of longer durations.

comment Why does my system shut down when running ffmpeg?
There is very little information here to provide much help. Are you using a laptop? Is it overheating? Video encoding is very CPU intensive.

comment ffmpeg: installing from repository or compiling from source?
@Dan Then I assume it failed during configure (possibly due to previous failure of compilation of any required external library) or make, but it is only a guess without any actual error messages.

comment Incorrect duration time in Audacious or any musical player when convert with ffmpeg or avconv
Glad it worked. You can provide and accept a full answer to your own question so others know a solution was found. I don't recommend /use/bin/ for your binary. You can put it in /usr/local/bin/ instead (or elsewhere in your PATH) and then you can keep the fake "ffmpeg" package for other dependent packages.

Instead of providing ffmpeg from FFmpeg, Ubuntu uses a fork that supplies avconv and a fake "ffmpeg" which are often buggy. What happens if you download a recent build of ffmpeg from FFmpeg (just download, extract, and execute) and then manually use it to convert to MP3? Does the resulting file display the correct information in the players?

comment Streaming with FFMpeg: Splashscreen?
Only other idea I have, excluding writing a patch to add -update functionality for the demuxer, is to simply stop the recording and then initiate a new ffmpeg command that just shows splashscreen.png. I don't know if that will work on Twitch or not since I'm not really familiar with the site.

comment Streaming with FFMpeg: Splashscreen?
Since x11grab will show whatever is on your screen why not just switch the focus in your windows manager (alt+tab or similar) to a fullscreen image whenever you need to use the shitter? I don't think the image2 demuxer has the -update option like the muxer does...might be a good feature request. Also, I highly recommend looking at Encoding for streaming sites with ffmpeg to optimize your stream for your, or your viewers, network speed (includes some examples too).

comment Editing AVI Metadata
You should include the complete ffmpeg console output from your command (you can add -t 10 to encode just 10 seconds).
