[MPlayer-users] Using the -vo Option

I am using mplayer version 0.90 on a Fedora Core 1 install of Linux.
I am trying to extract a jpeg frame sequence from a quicktime. I can do this
using the following:
mplayer -frames 1 -vo jpeg myquicktime.mov
However, I do not want the frames to be placed in the current directory.
According to the documentation (
I can change the output location using:
-vo <driver1[:suboption1[=value]:...],driv- er2,...[,]>
So I run:
mplayer -frames 1 -vo jpeg:outdir=/usr/people/mark-st/ myquicktime.mov
However this does not work, with mplayer giving the error:
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.
JPEG Unknown subdevice: outdir=/usr/people/mark-st/
but outdir is listed as a valid subdevice of jpeg in the docs.
Can anyone help me with this.
Thanks in advance.
