av_dump_format() is just a printing function. It is defined in
libavformat/utils.c. You can look into this file how where it finds the
various information it prints.

If you need some examples on how to use the API, look at the ffmpeg.c,
ffplay.c and ffprobe.c. Also, doc/examples contains various codes that
might help you.

Note: please do not top post, it is considered rude.
