 The documentation for the `hls_fmp4_init_filename` argument requires that
 if it is given, that it contains a "%v" string that will be replaced with
 the variation number. Likewise this is validated by the code here:

 But if a provide a value for it which is not the default ("init.mp4"), the
 "%v" does not get replaced and instead the variant number seems to have
 the fixed behavior of always appending it to the filename.

 So given a pattern of `something_init_%v.mp4`, it currently outputs a file
 named `something_init_%v_1.mp4`, while I would expect it to output

 If it helps, I think that the appending of the variant to the end occurs
 but there does not appear to be any consideration of "%v" in the string.

 If I comment out the entire validation block referenced in the first link
 and use the input pattern `something_init.mp4`, then it works fine for my
 needs, but is still inconsistent with the documentation.

 How to reproduce:
 % ffmpeg ..... -hls_fmp4_init_filename "something_init_%v.mp4" ....
