 When using a filename including the character ' within the .ass filename
 FFmpeg gives an error 'Error opening filter'

 Example with escaping
 -vf ass="/Volumes/Data/Movies/Crime\ d\'Amour.srt"

 or without escaping:
 -vf ass="/Volumes/Data/Movies/Crime d'Amour.srt"

 Both gives an error.

 When removing the ' character (and renaming the file to Crime dAmour.srt)
 it works fine.

 I did not test this with other filters (watermark etc..) but I guess it
 the same would happen.

 BTW with FFmpeg 1.0 compiled to OS X
