Some time in the last couple of weeks, when converting files using -ss and -t 
I got a message from ffmpeg to the effect that -t applies to the output file 
and should be specified accordingly. Alas, I don't remember the exact command 
or messsage. I will try to reproduce it but not tonight. I'm too tired. :-)
