This seems to have broken seeking and files ending. FLAC was
experienced yesterday but it seems like it's more general. This was
reported on the mpv users' channel by sfan5, but I feel like this
might be more general than related to just mpv. At first this was
thought to be limited to HTTP, but later was found out to be
applicable to local files as well.

< wm4> reproduction is "play anything with lavf"
< JEEB> oh really? and seek?
< sfan5> yes
< wm4> no, seek close to end of file and see if it ends correctly. if
it freezes it's the bug
< sfan5> sounds like two different bugs
< sfan5> bug 1: files don't end correctly
< sfan5> bug 2: seeking somewhere never finishes and spins the cpu
< sfan5> 2 is what i was experiencing yesterday
