The message currently (in my browser, plain iceweasel) missing from 
this thread on:
(and which would make unclear who I mean didn't care to look up the 
thread in April, e. g.) is this message that I have now replied to.
It is CC'd to ffmpeg-user at ffmpeg.org, maybe that is the reason.
Sadly, neither Luke's message shows in the link above to the archive of 
August 2014, the current messages (but I got his entire reply in my 
reply too).
And while I'm on technicalities of the list, when is someone (not 
blaming, just expressing my wish) of you FFmpeg administrators looking 
up the code that keeps this fine list running, and switching to wrapping 
texts after column 79 and not after 72 as is currently the case, IIUC 
(just a wish, again)?
