 Summary of the bug:
 Given a ffmpeg command line from somewhere.
 If one wants to find the documentation of a given option he may search on
 the web site with "-option". To succeed this search, it would be helpful
 to list the options with a '-' prefixed. Also if studying the
 documentation, it would be helpful as saving the '-' in the list of
 options is very uncommon with Linux documentation on commands.
 The statement "by specifying -option value" is quite difficult to find on
 such huge web pages and presupposes some avoidable thinking on what it may
 So _at least_ please add "(prefix the listed options with '-')".
