What types of videos? Does it print anything to STDOUT/STDERR in-between 
the nicely formatted outputs from PhotoFloat? (afaik, it should, 
regardless if error or not).

Do you have avprobe/ffprobe installed? What does the following output;

   avprobe/ffprobe -show_format -show_streams -of json -loglevel 0 

In order for PhotoFloat to transcode, it expects 'codec_type: video' in 
the JSON-output from that command.
