[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH] lavf/mov: fix hang while seek on a kind of fragmented mp4.

I also think it would be better if we store pts-es in different lists for
each track. However, it does NOT match the original design of data
structures. Several boxes will be affected. So I am trying to commit this
patch to discuss with maintainers.

At present, I prefer the last version patch(fall back to linear searching
only if needed). I could research more later.

Thanks and Regards,

Charles Liu
