Just to show all current flags and the loglevel I prefer:

For example to enable repeated log output, add the @code{level} prefix, and set @var{loglevel} to
ffmpeg -loglevel repeat+level+verbose -i input output
@end example

I'm not sure how useful this example is. Sure, it displays how to use "-", but is there an actual use case for using "-loglevel -level" since the level prefix is not shown by default anyway?
