This is because of the huge packet which contains all the data, you
can't pause in the middle of a packet.

The alternative is decode+interleave in the demuxer, this is ugly but
should be better for applications (and really you can't do better with
this format, design is to be blamed in this case), I'll try to come
with a proof of concept.
