ffplay: use new avformat_open_* API.

comment:3 by Stefano Sabatini, 10 years ago

Currently the command issues a warning suggesting an alternative, which is also documented in the manual.

Also, ffplay is generally not employed by scripts, so removing the option is not going to cause much harm.

If you care about keeping backward compatibility, you can do it like is done in ffmpeg.c:opt_video_channel()/opt_video_standard(), do return opt_default("video_size", arg) after the deprecation warning (and test that it works as expected). In this case the same should be done with -pix_fmt.
