these aren't standard features for a movie player...
try to remoce getch2_ functions from source and recompile. it
should solve terminal problems...
change filename in vo_png.c or add a new option...

> Surprise! it asks for an input from stdin after displaying the stats of

> Also I'm trying to give a particular name to the output PNGs, but always is
