It's just a feature request.

Using gdigrab I was wondering if is possible to select monitors by using an alias based on the monitor number index instead of cropping to a specific resolution with region and offsets.

This will make a command more portable and resolution independent.

Es: i have 3 monitors.

ffmpeg -y -f -i monitor=1 -framerate 30 -c:v ffv1 capture.mkv

to capture only the monitor index 1

ffmpeg -y -f -i monitor=1,2 -framerate 30 -c:v ffv1 capture.mkv

to capture monitor 1 and 2

ffmpeg -y -f -i monitor=2,1,4 -framerate 30 -c:v ffv1 capture.mkv

to capture monitor 2,1 and 4 stitched in the specified order.

I hope it will not be a big deal, but will be nice if you will implement it!

Best Regards
