I tested it and found it better with the same test

1. new index for old 50gb file works perfect
2. new six gb file still dumps me out of mplayer when I try to seek
3. new index with forceidx for the file created in test 2 now works 
perfect (was paused for a few seconds then playback problems after 4gb mark)

All I can find wrong is when initially capturing the file it doesn't 
create a index and that requires a separate step and saving the index as 
another file
