I can't parse that answer.
Should I commit even though setting the flag for writing and thus
testing doesn't work?
There is also another strange thing: while it works with -avioflags
direct, fate-svq3 breaks when initializing direct to 1 in
To be more precise, FFmpeg claims the file does not contain any streams.
Strangely, this seems to be related to the seeking function, commenting
out any of the !s->direct conditions there fixes it, as well as not
setting s->direct but instead disabling the first two cases otherwise
breaks it.
I think that last code path should be working in any and all (except
non-seekable stream) cases, right?
