Show Progress with Nautilus script


I have a script which I run to convert my .MTS videos to .flv. The script is in my Nautilus script folder. When I run the script it runs perfectly fine in the background without showing me any progress. I would like to see the progress of the conversions.

I've tried to get gnome-terminal and xterm pop-up to show the progress without success. I would appreciate it if someone could help, thanks!

Code:
#!/bin/bash

mkdir ./converted

for f in *.MTS; do ffmpeg -i "$f" -vcodec libx264 -acodec libmp3lame -ar 22050 -ab 32K -s 768x432 -f flv ./converted/"${f%.mpg}.flv"; done

i think you want to look into zenity or gdialog.
http://linux.die.net/man/1/zenity
the option you need is probably --progress

schneidz,

Thanks, I did end up using zenity. This is what the code looks like now:
Code:
#!/bin/bash

#Check for required software...
ffmpeg_bin=`which ffmpeg | grep -c "ffmpeg"`

# Check for ffmpeg
if [ $ffmpeg_bin -eq "0" ]; then
zenity --error --title="Error - Missing Software" \
 --text="You do not have the ffmpeg package installed
Please install it in order to use this script. 
Make sure that the Universe repositories are enabled and
then type: 'sudo apt-get install ffmpeg' at a terminal."
exit
fi

# Dialog box

	"" "768x432" \
	"" "1024x576" \
	"" "1280x720"`

if [ "${SIZE}" == "" ]; then    
zenity --error --text="Resolution not defined by user.
Please choose a resolution to use. "
exit 1
fi

# How many files to make the progress bar
PROGRESS=0
NUMBER_OF_FILES=`find . -maxdepth 1 -type f -name "*.MTS" | wc -l`
let "INCREMENT=100/$NUMBER_OF_FILES"

mkdir ./converted

ffmpeg -i "$f" -r 29.97 -vcodec libx264 -flags +loop -cmp +chroma -deblockalpha 0 -deblockbeta 0 -crf 21 -bt 256k -refs 1 -coder 0 -me_method full -me_range 16 -subq 5 -partitions +parti4x4+parti8x8+partp8x8 -g 250 -keyint_min 25 -level 30 -trellis 2 -sc_threshold 40 -i_qfactor 0.71 -s "${SIZE}" -aspect 16:9 -acodec libfaac -ab 112kb -ar 48000 -ac 2 ./converted/"${file%.MTS}.mp4"

Cheers, al.
