Hi Carl


It is a general question so I did not provide complete console output.

Let's say you know the nature of a multi media file as provided by ffprobe.

Now you want to provide the multi media file as input to ffmpeg.

Then what is the strategy as far as providing input parameters to ffmpeg to  
limit as much as possible the analysis and probe phase and enhance the  
probability that ffmpeg will be able to work with the multi media file ?
