I already do that. But I dislike it - for most of the other dump
options I can specify the file name to be used but not with -vo
yuv4mpeg. I dislike hard-coded filenames because that makes software
less flexible. A simple option that provides the output filename (like
-aofile, -dumpfile) would be nice.
