Look at your httpd logs (you may have to disable the null redirect on
the ffmpeg command to see the error message).  IIRC, there's an error
from ffmpeg; however, it's one that someone with a really beefy backend
is going to have to fix.  My Athlon XP 2400+ won't even play back an
HDTV recording in real-time, let alone transcode it.
