If the user has set none of the options specifying the segments'
durations, a default value of 2s is used by duplicating a "2" string and
using av_parse_time() on it. Yet duplicating the string was unchecked
and if the allocation failed, one would get a segfault in

This commit solves this by avoiding duplicating the string altogether if
no string has been provided; instead the duration is set explicitly to
what av_parse_time() would return for the string "2".

One could btw make the segment_time an option of type
AV_OPT_TYPE_DURATION, but then one could no longer distinguish the cases
in which the value has been set to its default value by the user and the
one in which the user hasn't set the option at all. Would this be a

Btw: Why are values <= 0 allowed for this?
