[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH] proposal for mov decoding seeking too much

Hi all,

After trying to play this mp4 newscast using ffmpeg (you can change the date at the end to have other days):

I found out that ffmpeg was seeking back and forth into the file to always get the next packet relatively to its dts, which consequentely had a very bad effect on remote files.
Here's my proposal for a patch, I'm just getting the next packet on the position in the file instead of on its dts. So far I haven't seen problems with my files.
