 Then why didn't you send a mail to the user mailing list (or to me
 directly) instead of opening an incomplete ticket here?

 > Command line is already provided. Can you explain why console output is
 usefull in this specific case, and you want to push needless efforts to
 the bug reporter?

 At least one of your other reports is completely incomprehensible.

 There is a hug number of tickets that were originally opened incomplete
 (similar to this one), a developer tried to guess what the ticket is
 about, spend a lot of time on it, and finally it turned out that the OP
 meant something else than what was guessed and the time was completely

 I don't deny that this is not exactly true for this specific ticket but as
 said, taken all your tickets from yesterday together I believe it makes a
 lot of sense to paste your console output (that afaict you already saw
 when you tested the issue or am I wrong?) here to reduce the possibly
 wasted time on tickets.

 Or - assuming we both agree that time is the only limiting factor in
 FFmpeg development (which is not necessarily true for open-source
 development in general) - would you say that it is unexpected that
 developers work on tickets that are reported with all necessary
 information instead of incomplete tickets?
