Windows 11, GNU Octave 9.1.0 (CLI run, terminal set to "Windows-Konsolenhost", not the new windows 11 default "windows-terminal"), video 2.1.1

pkg load video
demo ("VideoReader", 2)
[tcp @ 0000026cc5edea80] Failed to resolve hostname \raw.githubusercontent.com\opencv\opencv\master\samples\data\vtest.avi: The name does not resolve for the supplied parameters
warning: Error opening file (cap_ffmpeg_impl_ov.hpp:972)

looks like the URL in the demo code needs some special escaping on Windows?

Demo runs fine on Debian bookworm and bullseye



(Note: upload size limit is set to 16384 kB, after insertion of the required escape characters.)
