 On your website, you claim that "Converting video and audio has never been
 so easy." > https://ffmpeg.org/

 And you give an example how to use your software:
 "$ ffmpeg -i input.mp4 output.avi"

 However, real experts on that topic disagree. They think this simple
 command is not sufficient to convert a video as this will destroy color
 space and lead to poor video quality. >

 I asked: "Should every user of ffmpeg do a 'Bachelor of Color
 Management'?" > https://trac.ffmpeg.org/ticket/7037#comment:66

 And the answer was "Yes." and even " I fear it requires more..." and they
 furthermore said "functionality and user friendliness seemed to dislike
 each other..."

 Then I ask you to change your website and tell the truth. Please change
 text to:
 "ffmpeg is a library for audio or video experts who know every aspect of
 their topic and are well aware of all the options that need to be tuned
 for the desired output."
 or similar...
