ffmpeg (the executable) is a tool for audio-video transcoding.
While it contains (very, very) limited support for video-out, 
this should certainly not be the default, even more so as it 
is a very common usecase to type "ffmpeg -i input" to find 
out what actually is in an input file.

FFmpeg also contains a multimedia player, it is called ffplay.
