#5338 open enhancement
Implement -h, -h long, -h full in ffplay to match ffmpeg cli
|Reported by:||veganaiZe||Owned by:|
|Blocking:||Reproduced by developer:||yes|
|Analyzed by developer:||no|
Summary of the bug:
When trying to view the help for "ffplay" binary with the "-h" option, over 300K of text is dumped to the console window. How am I supposed to find anything -- especially when Windows doesn't provide 'grep' and I'm not doing powershell(period).
How to reproduce:
% ffplay -h
Please partition this (un)helpful output. Thank you.

unrelated to this bug, you may want to install grep on windows. same process as installing ffmpeg on windows.
grep (GNU grep) 2.4.2
