Description

Summary of the bug:
I cannot find a description of the return value of ffmpeg in the man pages ffmpeg.1 and ffmpeg-all.1. As far as I can see, this may be 0=everything fine, 1=error of some kind, 255=killed (SIGINT or SIGTERM). Maybe there are other possible return values.

How to reproduce:

% ffmpeg -i input output
% killall ffmpeg

Patches should be submitted to the ffmpeg-devel mailing list and not this bug tracker.
