Thank you! Interesting commandline :)

Interestingly, this showed "coder:0" for the original (=smallest) file,
whereas using "-coder 0" resulted in larger files than "-coder 1" in my

When I checked files encoded with "-coder 1", the above command output
"coder:2" - I've verified this behavior, and all files encoded with
"-coder 1" are being shown with "-coder 2". Why is that?
