     ffmpeg: add -(no)stdin option.

     Allows to disable interaction from standard input.
     Useful, for example, if ffmpeg is in the background process group.
     Roughly the same result can be achieved with "ffmpeg ... < /dev/null"
     but it requires a shell.

 The -nostdin option will disable reading from stdin mode, and seems more
 robust than try to be more clever than the user and auto-detect
 interactive mode.
 Together with -nostats should allow what pfalcon asks.
