You say that it is possible to skip analyzing the input in "some cases"
when you know the input codecs. How would this be done? Does anyone know of
any examples?

I have the possibility to ffprobe and save analyzeinformation of a file for
later usage. It would benefit me in this case to for example store the
analyzeinformation in a database so that the next time I need to run ffmpeg
on that particular file I dont need to set any analyzeduration at all and
give ffmpeg all the information it gathers from the analyzation of the file
as parameters.
