Yes! Now it makes sense. I was wondering why ffmpeg was looking for an
*output* format, but missed the fact that every non-option will be
interpreted as an output.

And "DOS" interprets '/' as an option separator, and accepts options
directly behind the executable's name without separating whitespace.

Edgar, you know what to do now?
