#5338 open enhancement

Implement -h, -h long, -h full in ffplay to match ffmpeg cli

Description

Summary of the bug:
(ffmpeg-20160310-git-66edd86-win64-static)
When trying to view the help for "ffplay" binary with the "-h" option, over 300K of text is dumped to the console window. How am I supposed to find anything -- especially when Windows doesn't provide 'grep' and I'm not doing powershell(period).

How to reproduce:

% ffplay -h

Please partition this (un)helpful output. Thank you.

unrelated to this bug, you may want to install grep on windows. same process as installing ffmpeg on windows.

C:\>grep --version
grep (GNU grep) 2.4.2
