First of all, let's be precise: this is not "buffer's header", it's
the "file header".

But anyway, I am not sure this fits your scenario. If you don't start
seeing decoded frames after a sufficient number of frames has been
buffered, you have a different problem. If your stream can carry
b-frames, you cannot use the proposed work-around. If you don't really
care about a few frames delay, you should not bother, and simply build
your program with the delay in mind.
