-Matches the stream with this index.
- at item @var{stream_type}[:@var{stream_index}]
- at var{stream_type} is one of following: 'v' for video, 'a' for audio,
-'s' for subtitle, 'd' for data, and 't' for attachments. If
- at var{stream_index} is given, then it matches the stream number
- at var{stream_index} of this type. Otherwise, it matches all streams of
-this type.
- at item p:@var{program_id}[:@var{stream_index}]
-If @var{stream_index} is given, then it matches the stream with number
- at var{stream_index} in the program with the id
- at var{program_id}. Otherwise, it matches all streams in the program.
- at item #@var{stream_id}
-Matches the stream by a format-specific ID.

 @code{avformat_match_stream_specifier()} function declared in the
