Well, d'uh. My bad.

These are the definitions from libavcodec/avcodec.h:
#define FF_COMPLIANCE_VERY_STRICT   2 ///< Strictly conform to an older more strict version of the spec or reference software.
#define FF_COMPLIANCE_STRICT        1 ///< Strictly conform to all the things in the spec no matter what consequences.
#define FF_COMPLIANCE_NORMAL        0
#define FF_COMPLIANCE_UNOFFICIAL   -1 ///< Allow unofficial extensions
#define FF_COMPLIANCE_EXPERIMENTAL -2 ///< Allow nonstandardized experimental things.

Could it be that there's a difference in option parsing for "-strict"
for format vs. codec options?

(Too much guessing on my side.)

ypatios, could you please show us your full command and complete uncut
console output?
