Only if you're using MPEG-2 recordings.

No problem. That's what allows you to seek instantaneously in MPEG-2
If you want to reduce the table's size, you can:
a) delete your MPEG-2 recordings.
b) transcode your MPEG-2 recordings to MPEG-4 recordings.
c) not worry about it and enjoy all the benefits the table provides. :)
d) upgrade to 0.20, where the seektable data in recordedmarkkup gets
moved to recordedseek (so then you'll have a huge recordedseek table and
a small recordedmarkup table). ;)
