FFplay doesn't stop

Reported by: Michael Koch Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: ffplay
Version: git-master Keywords: loop
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no


FFplay doesn't stop when an image is displayed with this command line:

ffplay -loop 0 -t 5 -autoexit 1200.png

Shouldn't the -t option have higher priority than the -loop option, as in FFmpeg?
Without -loop option, the image is shown only for one frame.

Known workaround: -loop 125

-loop has the higher priorty, -t affects the play interval of the media. That is just how it is implemented. So -t 1 -loop 0 loops the first second infinitely.

If I want to show an image for x seconds, what's the best workaround to do this? It can be done with -loop x*25, but may be there is a better workaround which doesn't need multiplication by 25?
