Reported by: Ulf Zibis Owned by: Gyan

Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no


Summary of the bug:
At there is no hint that options should be postfixed by a stream specifier in case of ambiguity. An example would be helpful too.
At the given example doesn't reflect the statement: "... a stream specifier should be attached ...", so "... in case of ambiguity" should be amended.
For the same applies.
How to reproduce:

% ffmpeg -i input -level:a 5 output # avoid ambiguity with video codec level
ffmpeg version: current

At ​ the given example doesn't reflect the statement

That example applies a format option. I'll add a new example for codec options.
