Allows seeking to non-keyframes on demuxer level if set to 1.
This can speed up seeking on broken Matroska files.
Default is 0.

Helps with transport streams starting with a lot of trash.
May break some file types.

This works around timestamp wraps in transport streams (like DVB).

Sorry for the late reply!
