Ticket #1686 (closed defect: fixed)
Dataloss because ffmpeg manpage about -passlogfile is wrong

ffmpeg manpage about -passlogfile is wrong, it says:
Set two-pass log file name prefix to prefix, the default file name prefix is ffmpeg2pass. The complete file name will be PREFIX-N.log, where N is a number specific to the output stream."
So based on that I felt it was safe to use the input filename as -passlogfile, but nooo, it was not safe, and my input files was overwritten, causing a dataloss :-(
Command lines and ffmpeg output is attached as files.
System is debian stable.
