thanks for the idea,

btw. adding "-ao null -vo null" helps a bit, because this way he won't
try to open video/audio...


ps1: am i correct that the diff between -nosound/-ao_null is that with
-ao_null the audio data is decoded but with -nosound it's not?
ps2: not so important, but for consistency it would be nice to have a
-novideo switch too

That's life for you, said McDunn.  Someone always waiting for someone 
who never comes home.  Always someone loving something more than that 
thing loves them.  And after awhile you want to destroy whatever 
that thing is, so it can't hurt you no more.
