Error opening filters!

It works fine when using -filter:v or -vf, and -filter:a or -af though. Also note the problem doesn't arise if the input is audio-only or video-only.

We should either fail with a more explicit error when the type specifier is not set, or have better heuristics to guess what the user wants.
