With that very old version of ffmpeg, he would have to, as it doesn't
support "-to". ;-)

Let me add that you need to be prepared for surprises. To quote the
"Note that if you specify -ss before -i only, the timestamps will be
reset to zero, so -t and -to have not the same effect. If you want to
keep the original timestamps, add the -copyts option."

Please see some of the examples here (none of them using "-to" as an
input option by the way):


P.S.: Thanks for a technical email. The list doesn't get many these
      days. ;) But I too agree ffmpeg-0.6.x really shouldn't be
      supported. With 2.8.x I wouldn't be so hard on the poster.
