Yes, I did consider that, the problem was 'means' was critical to
understanding (and not misunderstand 'mean' to mean something else),
while the missing article wasn't critical, and at the same time I didn't
want to presume i knew absolutely certain what 'chain of filters' means and
that it needs an article.
Filtergraph, however, is also consistent with the rest of the documentation
and thus, to me, is preferred.

Please take a look again, a couple more fixes:
