#3850 closed defect (fixed)

ffmpeg showinfo misleading documentation or bug

Reported by: Selur Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: documentation
Version: git-master Keywords: showinfo documentation
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: yes
Analyzed by developer: yes

Description states that "It accepts the following parameters: ..."
problem is it doesn't accept any parameters.

[Parsed_showinfo_1 @ 000000000055d3c0] This filter does not take any options,....

so either the documentation is off or 'showinfo' is broken, my guess is that the documentation is off.
