Additional information related to my first message.

Building with gcc produces no trace of avfoundation support in full help.

Building with clang shows...

AVFoundation input device AVOptions:
   -list_devices      <int>        .D...... list available devices (from 0 to 1) (default 0)
      true                         .D......
      false                        .D......
   -video_device_index <int>        .D...... select video device by index for devices with same name (starts at 0) (from -1 to INT_MAX) (default -1)
   -pixel_format      <pix_fmt>    .D...... set pixel format (default yuv420p)

So many avfoundation is referenced through some sort of
Libavfilter incantation.

https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Capture/Webcam suggest no + maybe the docs
are just missing some vital bit of information to use avfoundation.
