This is basically the image2 demuxer. > I'd like to know how I can specify which files are used and in which order. > Maybe my question is where is the input URL functionality documented? It's documented in the image2 demuxer's docs: https://ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg-formats.html#image2-1 Look at the description of "pattern_type" and its restrictions. If you want to specify an arbitrary list (random file names, non-alphabetical order), it's probably easiest to rename the files - or better, using a modern operating system, creating symbolic links - to adhere to "somename%08d.suffix" in numerical order without gaps.
