+Null muxer.
+This muxer does not generate any output file, it is mainly useful for
+testing or benchmarking purposes.
+For example to benchmark decoding with @file{ffmpeg} you can use the
+ at example
+ffmpeg -benchmark -i INPUT -f null out.null
+ at end example
+Note that the above command does not read or write the @file{out.null}
+file, but specifying the output file is required by the @file{ffmpeg}
+Alternatively you can write the command as:
+ at example
+ffmpeg -benchmark -i INPUT -f null -
+ at end example
 @c man end MUXERS
