> I suggest the following solutions:
> 1. create the acodec/vcodec/scodec options, as an alias to
>    codec:{a,v,s}, while keeping support to the old syntax
> This is consistent with the general options, setting codec:v/a/s gives
> the wrong impression that ffplay supports the more generic ffmpeg
> syntax, which is not true, and creating a partial mapping is
> confusing.
> 2. allow to specify stream options through the syntax:
> This would allow to overcome the limitation at point 1, but would be
> inconsistent with the ffmpeg syntax.
> I'll implement 1, while it would be useful to implement 2 at some
> point, in order to support generic stream option setting (the change
> could be propagate to the other tools and factorized).
