hello all -

when i issue this command:

./ffmpeg  -formats  ;

i don't see "opus" listed, but -codecs, -encoders, and -decoders does show
opus (below)

i am unable to use the "-f opus" to create an opus file.    i have attached
a list of formats available to me.

./ffmpeg  -i /home/mark/tester.wav * -f  opus*  /home/mark/tester2.opus   ;
