Yes, perhaps.

Instead of letting us guess, you could provide both your command lines
(i.e. of both ffmpeg and ffplay) and each of their uncut console
outputs. ffplay does for example show warnings and error messages, they
are not there for pure fun, but to indicate what went wrong.

(Please use the commands *without* "-hide_banner" and without changing
the default loglevel.)
