Syncplay now crashes when passing player arguments that worked fine before #333

It is common for my friends to keep the following in their player arguments field: --ytdl-format=bestvideo[height<=1080] in order to reduce bandwidth by not streaming youtube videos and the like in 4K. With the latest syncplay, these player arguments started causing immediate crashes of syncplay/mpv, even before any media attempts to load.

Specifically, we tested this on windows, using mpv.exe as the player.

I narrowed down the issue to the = character. Specifically, I can use --ytdl-format=bestvideo[height<1081] as a workaround. I hope this helps diagnose the bug.

I have this problem too, removing the = sign from commands lets syncplay start normally.
Before version 1.6.4a i did not have the problem.
