[Hi Alan, very late at night here...]

You haven't looked well :-) 

 CTRL+F for "-loglevel" (5.2 Generic options)

CTRL+F for "-stats"  (5.4 Main options)

"-v 8 -stats" supresses all ffmpeg output 
except for "-stats" output; this combo is 
needed in the event the partial.mp4.ts file 
is derivative of a hvf tvmode, because in 
that case higher ffmpeg verbosity floods 
the command prompt window with warnings 
about discrepancies in DTS/PTS 
(decoding time stamps (DTS) and presentation time stamps (PTS) 
- you can search for those yourself...).

 CTRL+F for "-bsf"

"-bsf:a" (formerly -absf) is an audio filter to properly mux 
the audio elementary stream (.aac) inside the MP4 container; 
explore ffmpeg -bsfs

Stay away from overly conditioned 
indoors, as we don't want a repeat of 
last year's, do we? 

Always your friend,
