will -vo be getting the same treatment? that'd be handy
> Ok i've finally done it. -vc and -vfm options accepts a list of codec
> names/driver names now. so you can set up your preferred codec list/priority
> without editing codecs.conf.
> -vfm works as before, but you can list more than one driver name.
> example: -vfm ffmpeg,dshow,vfw
> means: try first the ffmpeg codecs, if none acceptable, then try dshow, then
> vfw, if still none ok, fallback to the others.
> -vc is more tricky!
> -vc foobar - same as before: really force codec 'foobar', no fallback.
> -vc foobar, - try 'foobar' first, then fallback to others (-vfm is still in the game!)
> -vc foo,bar, - try foo, then bar, then others
> -vc ,foobar - try others (non-crashing codecs), fallback to foobar
> (maybe(?) useful to put it to configfile for testing crashing codecs)
> -vc -foo,-bar, - try others except foo and bar
