#2584 closed enhancement (fixed)

Allow video loop on file protocol @ ffmpeg

On ffmpeg, the "-loop" input option currently only works for image2 format and not for videos using the file protocol.
This is somewhat surprising once ffplay can loop over a video file with the "-loop" option. Also, the "concat" demuxer should allow this behavior without much work.

The expected usage should be the same as ffplay (the amount of loops, being 0 == infinite) and not like image2 (true/false).

$ ffmpeg -loop 10 -i input.avi ... output

The "movie" filter could also take advantage of that feature.
