-r FORMAT, --reencode=FORMAT
This causes clive to call ffmpeg to re-encode the
downloaded video to another FORMAT. The FORMAT can be anything as long as
ffmpeg recognizes it.
Note that if "--play" is being used and the value is other
than "src", you don't need to use this option. For example:
% clive --play=mpg URL
