> I don't like it very much, an url/uri is an identifier/locator of a
> resource (which can be retrieved using some protocol, yes a normal
> file can be identified by the url "file:/FILE"), what the protocol
> allows to concatenate is the physical content of the resources
> referenced by the urls, so I continue to prefer "concat" / "cat"
> as names.
> The term "url" in urlconcat is misleading, there is nothing special
> about urls in this protocol as all the files/streams in ffmpeg are
> referenced using uris (e.g. ffplay file:/in.avi).
> Also having the name of the protocol equal to the prefix used
> (e.g. concat protocol -> "concat:") would be nice as this is what
> happens for all the other supported protocols.
>  Choose the patch you prefer. The previous uses "urlconcat", this one
instead "concat".
