Whether -ss works or not depends on whether the video in question is
broken or not...  Yours apparently is.  Try a different file, and you
should have better results.  If you really need to seek, you can re-mux
it into an MPEG-PS or AVI file with mencoder.

-endpos will always work, because it doesn't have to do any seeking.
