#5730: h.264 (BBC HD) recording length incorrect, skip not working

 Priority:  minor           |   Milestone:  unknown

 My efforts with h.264 content have been varied for a while, but until
 recently it was possible to record and watch h.264 content (from DVB-S) on
 this box.

 Using svn 18322 with skiploopfilter patch

 HD content records successfully, but on playback the recording length is
 indicated incorrectly. The first recording (52 minutes) displays as 4:18
 (file is 7Gb and mplayer can play past this point); the second recording
 (81 minutes) displays as 6:44. In mythweb both recordings appear to have
 the correct length. When mythtv hits what it thinks is the length of the
 recording, it stops as if it has come to the end of a file as normal.

 In addition, any attempt to skip forwards during playback results in the
 stream restarting from the beginning. The counter however increases as if
 the skip was successful. (ie you end up watching the start of the show
 with 00:30 etc showing on the OSD)

 Apologies if this is the result of the skiploopfilter patch (I'm not
 really sure how it would be) - but HD isn't watchable on this system
 without it; I'm hoping someone else can reproduce this.
