 That might be solved if the fake module is converted to a real demuxer.
It would then load the file and send it to a standard decoder (or it could do
the decoding itself if easier).
 To not lose the decoder fake functionnality, it could still works the old way
when specifically asked by fake://

 So not forced: standard demuxer reading the file itself.
 When forced: like before/now.
