v.1.2.0 changes:
- dropped legacy targets: now only netstandard2.0 and net45 builds are supported
- now relative paths (both for input/output) are resolved in respect to the current working directory, not to ffmpeg location (FFMpegToolPath)
- fixed an issue when FFMpegException didn't reflect the last error line from ffmpeg console log output
