Woops, that's my fault. The point is: we can now use variables (see
http://wiki.videolan.org/Documentation:Play_HowTo/Format_String) to use
meta data from the video in our output filename. Those meta data
sometimes contain invalid characters, which is why i was replacing some
chars ... but dots should definitively stay. I'll fix this.
