By design, the record plugin will only ever work for file formats that 
can be synched in the middle of nowhere. That mostly means MPEG-TS.

It cannot be made otherwise as an access filter. For a more general 
purpose solution, you have to remultiplex the data stream, which means 
spawning a muxer and an access output, in addition to the usual 
decoder/output chain and is far beyond the idea of the record 

There should be no such issue with the timeshift module, unless a 
particular demux plugin is badly broken.
