 Summary of bug:
 It appears that newer versions of FFmpeg do not allow PNG files to be
 specified within the -vf (video filter command).

 How to reproduce:

 ffmpeg -y -i big_buck_bunny_1080p_h264.mov \
 -b:v 3000k -vcodec h264 -t 30 -acodec aac -strict experimental -ab 128k \
 -vf "movie='sample-128.png' [wm]; [in] [wm] overlay=W-w-10:H-h-10 [out]" \

 I was able to reproduce this with:

 FFmpeg 2.4
 FFmpeg 2.4.1
 ffmpeg version N-40926-g303fc9b

 The exact same command works when replacing the PNG file with a JPEG file.
