A while ago I started to make and input driver for VirtualDub. I can go
deep on this subject. The problem is indexing API: it is not present. Event
with best container (mp4 fully indexed) there is no straight API to get
frame number by packet or seek to frame number or which frames I can seek
to etc. What I actually learned: index_entries often contains valid
information for such purpose. BUT it is not exposed as public API and no
guarantees are made.
