I want to concatenate files with ffmpeg using Concat demuxer as described in this article How to concatenate (join, merge) media files. My files, however contain, single quotes (apostrophes). So my concat.list looks like this:
file 'artist's song.mp3' file 'artist's song 2 .mp3'
As you can see the apostrophe in the middle of the filename conflicts with the format of the concat file. Putting backslash doesn't help, because ffmpeg reads the filename literary and complains that the file doesn't exist. As additional detail, I'm using ffmpeg with cygwin under Windows 7.
