So I've rebuilt the recorded markup table using mythcommflag, but it only
adds records for the blank frames, it doesn't add any records for the
keyframes (type 7).  Does anyone know if this matters for seeking?

I figured out why MythTV is reporting my video at over 6 hours when it is
only 23 minutes long.  When the file gets opened by avformatdecoder it
doesn't get a bitrate for the video.  So it thinks the total bitrate is
128kbs (which is only the bitrate of the audio).  So it thinks there are
~500k frames instead of ~40k frames.  But I don't know if this matters...
does MythTV actually care how many frames are in the video when seeking?
