FFmpeg error while adding watermark: Not overwriting – exiting

Issue

I’m implementing a video editing feature on my Flutter App using the Flutter-FFmpeg package, [Adding watermarks on video] specifically, while executing the code I got this error:

E/mobile-ffmpeg( 5731): Not overwriting - exiting
D/flutter-ffmpeg( 5731): FFmpeg exited with rc: 1

Most importantly, the output file cannot be played by the VideoPlayer. And it just LOADS FOREVER, the VideoController Widget shows that the player is buffering. I’ve tested My VideoPlayer widget, and it works very well on the videos that were not processed.

Here’s the code I’m using:

    await FlutterFFmpeg().execute(
        '-i video.mp4 -i logo.png -filter_complex [0:v][1:v]overlay=5:5 -c:a copy -movflags +faststart output.mp4'
    );

A full log of the executing process in case it helps:

Solution

This happens when target output file already exists. Make sure it is not the same file as the input. Then add -y to force overwrite output in case it already exists.
