[FFmpeg-user] Cannot ^C out of ffplay, crashes due to opening too many files.

ffplay works fine inside an X session however running it from a plain
tty means it keeps trying to open files, preventing ^C from having any
effect, and eventually crashes when it hits the file limit. -nodisp
fixes this, however I think it would be useful that ffplay would not
try to start a GUI window indefinitely.
