#5338: ffplay -h help option broken
             Reporter:  veganaiZe  |                     Type:  defect
               Status:  new        |                 Priority:  normal
            Component:  ffplay     |                  Version:  unspecified

 Summary of the bug:
 When trying to view the help for "ffplay" binary with the "-h" option,
 over 300K of text is dumped to the console window.  How am I supposed to
 find anything -- especially when Windows doesn't provide 'grep' and I'm
 not doing powershell(period).

 How to reproduce:
 % ffplay -h

 Please partition this (un)helpful output.  Thank you.
