If a VO is created, this will return either the actual display FPS, or
an invalid value, instead of the option value.

+ If you set the properties during playback, and the filter chain fails to
+ reinitialize, the new value will be rejected. Setting the option or

+ When set as option, the maximum (set by ``--volume-max``) is not checked,
+ while when set as property, the maximum is enforced.
+ The property is read-only and returns the current internal playlist. The
+ option is for loading playlist during command line parsing. For client API
+ uses, you should use the ``loadlist`` command instead.
+ The property refuses setting out of range values, restarts playback
+ immediately when writing to it, and does not know the ``no`` value (which
+ the option uses to indicate the default state, that is resuming a file
