Up to fairly recently (20050523-20050528) it was possible to do a quick
check of the file format by doing a:
$ ffmpeg -i apa
ffmpeg version 0.4.9-pre1, build 4743, Copyright (c) 2000-2004 Fabrice
configuration: --enable-gpl --enable-mp3lame --enable-xvid
built on Feb 27 2005 21:59:44, gcc: 3.3.3 (cygwin special)
Input #0, avi, from 'apa':
Duration: 00:00:07.3, start: 0.000000, bitrate: 35943 kb/s
Stream #0.0: Video: dvvideo, 720x576, 29.97 fps
Stream #0.1: Audio: pcm_s16le, 44100 Hz, stereo, 1411 kb/s
Must supply at least one output file
However, with a new version of ffmpeg the nice input file info is missing.
Would it be a silly thing to add a -probeonly -ish flag to ffmpeg?
Perhaps it would give away a bit more info than the above, if possible
