if we have gzip demuxer and probe gzip compression... then pass it onto
probe after decompressing?

its not like compressed mov because the compressed mov header is inside
of the regular mov container (iirc).

there are a lot of video files that are zipped or rared.
also zip compressed image files , example cbz/cbr.

can we get zip/rar demuxer?

some video players are able to play multipart rar video files.

i understand that its still a low priority.
