Comment (by Xenos):

 For the old ffmpeg version:

 {{{[lavfi @ 01fcb9a0] No such filter: 'sine' sine=d=1: Invalid argument}}}

 For the newer
 {{{$ ffmpeg -f lavfi -i sine=d=1 "01 Piste 1.wma"}}}

 Detects the overwritable output file (hence, asks for {{{Overwrite?
 [y/N]}}}), but a relative or absolute path with "Intégrale" doesn't: the
 file is created at the right place (Intégrale/...ogg") but the checker
 fails to detect this file already exists (since it seems to check for

 Either you should put a simple warning in the documentation saying that
 accent (or non-base-ASCII chars) will fail, or you should fix the checker
 to use the same encoding as the converters (since the converted file is at
 the right place, meaning that the converter uses the correct path but the
 "does-output-exist" checker doesn't).
