This will probably complete someone else's FOSS bingo card, but if
you are intent on putting in many hours of work to figure out ffmpeg
options, you might be served by browsing the source code.

(That's "It's all documented in the source", for anyone playing
along at home)

One of the great things about this ML, and QA sites is that the
questions and responses are public. Asking for thousands of
private examples runs contrary to that.

That being said, I suspect people would glady send you
personal examples on the basis of private consultancy. Do
you have a budget?

My main question is why won't commands from this ML
to other users, and answers to questions on QA sites
from the same people suffice for your purpose? Or to
put it another way: how will people sending you
thousands of examples know they are being helpful?

I mean, the `rm' example (presumably) works, but
that didn't seem to be what you were looking for.
