 Summary of the bug:

 "ffprobe -of XXX" wraps the output in something that might contain XXX but
 the actual output is unchanged.

 How to reproduce:
 % ffmpeg -hide_banner -of json 01.ogg
 Input #0, ogg, from '01.ogg':
   Duration: 00:02:36.45, start: 0.000000, bitrate: 141 kb/s
   Stream #0:0: Audio: vorbis, 44100 Hz, stereo, fltp, 160 kb/s


 This happens with MP4 files too so looks like a generic problem.
