I don't know the precise answer to your query, but have you thought of using this instead:

Available in repos and so easy even I could use it, it is just a gui frontend for ffmpeg so it takes the guesswork and head scratching out of using the cli. (The site I linked to has other alternatives listed as well if you don't like that one).

Edit. Here is another one you might try: ... ntu-linux/

Haven't heard of that before, but just saw an article about it. I don't see a way to change the output folder in this case though.
