ffmpeg assumes that an hour has less than 60 minutes and expects you to
specify this time as 1:05:00.

That's logical and acceptable, but I too would like ffmpeg to accept
[0:]65:00 (or even 128:00), because that corresponds to the time specs
several media players (most notably my STB/PVR) use. :-)
