Comment (by DonMoir):

 This is a file that exact timestamp seeking fixes completely. There are
 many index_entries but only the first entry is marked as a keyframe. There
 are no issues with seeking on this file if exact timestamp seeking is
 used. That is, it's very quick.

 So yes, nice if exact timestamp seeking was put into ffmpeg. The current
 alternative is do this from a higher level.

 If exact timestamp seeking is put into ffmpeg, it will be necessary that
 the interrupt_callback (or similiar) is called so the app has a chance to
 abort or put it's seek thread to sleep briefly.
