Hmm, I must be missing something here, because I get this error:

$ ffmpeg -stats -y -i Original.mkv -filter_complex
-map 0:v -map 0:s channel_split.mkv
[AVFilterGraph @ 0x559f11cf7f80] Error initializing filter
'channelsplit' with args 'channel_layout=7.1:channels=LF|RF'
Error initializing complex filters.
Invalid argument

But when I tried things along these lines, I got complaints that some
of the outputs weren't connected to anything.
