It's a puzzle. ;-)
I found this reference in the man pages, but I don't really understand it.

Loop over the input stream. Currently it works only for image
streams. This option is used for automatic FFserver testing.  This
option is deprecated, use -loop 1.

-loop_output number_of_times
Repeatedly loop output for formats that support looping such as
animated GIF (0 will loop the output infinitely).  This option is
deprecated, use -loop.
