Please try to imagine what the shell does with "*.jpg" and you 
will understand that this cannot work.
If your files are pic001.jpg - pic999.jpg use:
ffmpeg -i pic%3d.jpg
If they are named (completely) differently, you will have to 
use the new glob syntax, unfortunately, I don't know how it 
works (yet)...

This is too old (apart from the fact that it produces the segfault 
you are seeing), please use current git head.
