I would like to see ffplay working as it is disabled as currently installed. One night even want to be able to set it as an external Player???
FFMPEG is the ony thing I can find on linux that will display a video waveform , and this is a very handy tool, and necessary that one can check sources/streams this way especially for those authoring content. IMHO this is one thing that Kodi lacks and needs.
another use case may be that someone wants to capture a single stream like security camera . It is logical to do this on the same LE where it would be viewed. I have been looking to see if there was such an addon but ffmpeg seems to be the only option
