 Summary of the request: Currently the Concat demuxer required a text file
 input which requires all special characters AND spaces to be escaped.

 I'm suggesting 2 enhancements to it:
 1. Instead of escaping the filepath characters, accept the file path input
 in double quotes:
 e.g. file "C:\Test Videos\Test1.wtv"

 2. Use the same format as the concat protocol for input file names rather
 than a text file, it makes the command line management a whole lot easier.
 e.g. -f concat -i "\"C:\Test Directory\Test1.wtv\"|"C:\Test
