If one assumes an MPEG-PS format with correct timestamps, correct
seeking to a particulat frame using repeated bisection then a little bit
of MxV parsing should work, no? Of course the problem is then to
*decode* non-key frames, especially when faced with variable GOP size or
So ITYM 'seeking in a pathological MPEG'?
