FFplay is a very simple and portable media player using the FFmpeg
libraries and the SDL library. It is mostly used as a testbed for the
various FFmpeg APIs.

@chapter Options
@c man begin OPTIONS
@include avtools-common-opts.texi
@section Main options
@table @option
@item -x @var{width}
Force displayed width.
@item -y @var{height}
Force displayed height.
@item -s @var{size}
Set frame size (WxH or abbreviation), needed for videos which do
not contain a header with the frame size like raw YUV. This option
has been deprecated in favor of private options, try -video_size.
@item -an
Disable audio.
@item -vn
Disable video.
@item -ss @var{pos}
Seek to a given position in seconds.
@item -t @var{duration}
play <duration> seconds of audio/video
@item -bytes
Seek by bytes.
@item -nodisp
Disable graphical display.
@item -f @var{fmt}
Force format.
@item -window_title @var{title}
Set window title (default is the input filename).
@item -loop @var{number}
Loops movie playback <number> times. 0 means forever.
@item -showmode @var{mode}
Set the show mode to use.
Available values for @var{mode} are:
@table @samp
@item 0, video
show video
@item 1, waves
show audio waves
@item 2, rdft
show audio frequency band using RDFT ((Inverse) Real Discrete Fourier Transform)
@end table
Default value is "video", if video is not present or cannot be played
"rdft" is automatically selected.
You can interactively cycle through the available show modes by
pressing the key @key{w}.
@item -vf @var{filter_graph}
@var{filter_graph} is a description of the filter graph to apply to
the input video.
Use the option "-filters" to show all the available filters (including
also sources and sinks).
@item -i @var{input_file}
Read @var{input_file}.
@end table
@section Advanced options
@table @option
@item -pix_fmt @var{format}
Set pixel format.
This option has been deprecated in favor of private options, try -pixel_format.
@item -stats
Show the stream duration, the codec parameters, the current position in
the stream and the audio/video synchronisation drift.
@item -bug
Work around bugs.
@item -fast
Non-spec-compliant optimizations.
@item -genpts
Generate pts.
@item -rtp_tcp
Force RTP/TCP protocol usage instead of RTP/UDP. It is only meaningful
if you are streaming with the RTSP protocol.
@item -sync @var{type}
Set the master clock to audio (@code{type=audio}), video
(@code{type=video}) or external (@code{type=ext}). Default is audio. The
master clock is used to control audio-video synchronization. Most media
players use audio as master clock, but in some cases (streaming or high
quality broadcast) it is necessary to change that. This option is mainly
used for debugging purposes.
@item -threads @var{count}
Set the thread count.
@item -ast @var{audio_stream_number}
Select the desired audio stream number, counting from 0. The number
refers to the list of all the input audio streams. If it is greater
than the number of audio streams minus one, then the last one is
selected, if it is negative the audio playback is disabled.
@item -vst @var{video_stream_number}
Select the desired video stream number, counting from 0. The number
refers to the list of all the input video streams. If it is greater
than the number of video streams minus one, then the last one is
selected, if it is negative the video playback is disabled.
@item -sst @var{subtitle_stream_number}
Select the desired subtitle stream number, counting from 0. The number
refers to the list of all the input subtitle streams. If it is greater
than the number of subtitle streams minus one, then the last one is
selected, if it is negative the subtitle rendering is disabled.
@item -autoexit
Exit when video is done playing.
@item -exitonkeydown
Exit if any key is pressed.
@item -exitonmousedown
Exit if any mouse button is pressed.
@item -codec:@var{stream_type}
Force a specific decoder implementation
@end table
@section While playing
@table @key
@item q, ESC
Quit.
@item f
Toggle full screen.
@item p, SPC
Pause.
@item a
Cycle audio channel.
@item v
Cycle video channel.
@item t
Cycle subtitle channel.
@item w
Show audio waves.
@item left/right
Seek backward/forward 10 seconds.
@item down/up
Seek backward/forward 1 minute.
@item page down/page up
Seek backward/forward 10 minutes.
@item mouse click
Seek to percentage in file corresponding to fraction of width.
