Does piping really work under Windows? The Windows equivalent to 'cat' would be 'dir /b'. But changing the command line this way creates an error that basically says that the input stream is empty.

I couldn't find any example for input piping with ffmpeg on Windows. Are you sure that it functions at all?

BTW: Is there any source of information on the specifics and limitations when using ffmpeg under Windows? The situation seems to be a little bit like that for ImageMagick, where I had to write that kind of webpage myself (http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/windows).
