If I interpret this correctly, the default is non-seekable. The
consequence is that everyone using xbmc to view videos at
http://uitzendinggemist.nl will not be able to seek through the
on-demand streams. I do not think those users will love this patch.

The default was seekable (resulting in problems when watching Fox
Soccer2Go). The effect of this patch will be that you deprive users of
on-demand streams seeking. Is that really desirable? Is there no way to
distinguish between on demand and live streams?
