What is the GUI in the preview images? 1 Helpful

ffmpeg doesn't have a GUI, so, what's up with those screenshots? I'm interested in that utility.


This is a command line app... There is no user interface.

A command line app being an alternative to an app with a GUI isn't really an alternative at all for a lot of people.

I'm not sure any of the related sites are clear enough on this.

Don't get me wrong, truly amazing work is being done here. I just think the main and "sister" sites could easily be more clear that this isn't an "app" by today's understanding. This is a command line utility.
