Hi I'm trying to loop a generated .mov with an mjpeg sequence... Unfortunatly
no success... Since the there where some changes to how you specify a
looping I also tried to create an looping animating gif. It looks horrible,
but it does loop. This tells me the '-loop_output 0' instruction is correct
for my version of ffmpeg.

will produce a looping gif animation
ffmpeg -y -loop_output 0 -f image2 -i '%03d.jpg' -r 25 -y -pix_fmt rgb24

will NOT produce a looping mov sequence
ffmpeg -y -loop_output 0 -f image2 -i '%03d.jpg' -r 25 -sameq -vcodec mjpeg

Help is very much appreciated...
