#685 new defect

-o[av]c copy should be default

Description

when the user does not specify how they want the stream encoded, the default
should be to reuse the original encoding, i.e. -ovc/-oac copy. i can't think of
a case where a user would be done wrong by this behavior. it will mean easier
syntax for all -ss/-endpos editing operations and should be programatically trivial.

i should mention that the current behavior is to throw an error saying that
-o[av]c must be specified.

what if a user had -lavcopts line and just forgot -ovc lavc ?

if -ovc copy is default, then it should halt on -vf and -sub as well
see bug #455 for more info
