Now I get "No such file or directory" again. :) I think I will just give up parallel.

comment gnu parallel: quoted arguments and spaces in file names. How to solve?
The parallel doesn't work, now I get "Unable to find a suitable output format for $output_folder_with_spaces".

comment gnu parallel: quoted arguments and spaces in file names. How to solve?
Your exec works. But I still can't understand why the pipe solution fails only with spaces, I have the same script but for converting videos (without spaces) and it works. Do you have an explanation? Or was I wrong from the beginning and working was just a matter of luck?

I'm reencoding to use in a low end device. Thanks for your warning though.

@steeldriver There was a parallel in there as well. The problem is not with the piping tough, I have a similar setup but for converting videos and it works. But if you have a -exec solution that solves the space issue, no problem.
