Right, I should look up the V4L2 flags instead of just ripping the data 
straight out of the MPEG header, which should make this patch applicable 
to any hardware encoded steams.

Can you tell me if always it's safe just to keep a running count of the 
keyframes written and use that as the keyframe number in the call to 
UpdateSeekTable?  (The old code that assumes fixed keyframe distance 
uses "((fnum - startnum) >> 1) / keyframedist")
