This is interesting, but the use case must be considered very carefully,
there are tons of things that can be done with a zip file, even relevant to

- demux a bunch of images as a kind of image2 stream;

- present an archive of font files as attachments (with the patch I have not
  yet pushed to MPlayer, that means you could use them directly);

- read several files in parallel (with split audio and video for example;
  does the zip format allow interleaving);

- etc.

> +    {"file_index", "set file index", OFFSET(file_index), AV_OPT_TYPE_INT, {.i64 = 0}, -1, INT_MAX, D|E },

That is not very user-friendly.
