They do not, the demuxer is only using 14 bytes of the ULs (as
specified) and completely according to the specification the
first 14 bytes of the ULs MPEG-2 video and audio match.
The reason for splitting them is that it is a really bad idea
to assign a video codec id when we have set codec_type to audio
and vice versa, even when that is actually what is stored in the file.
The alternative is to only lookup up the codec id and set the codec
type automatically based on it, but the current behaviour is just
