Is it possible to make ffmpeg wait a couple seconds before starting to record? if so how is there another way to start an ffmpeg script besides from the terminal?


If you're starting ffmpeg from the terminal, you could use sleep to wait a few seconds before starting it.

sleep 10 && ffmpeg

…will start ffmpeg after 10 seconds.
