Anything that fits.
The current demuxer:
- doesn't seek correctly to I-frames
- is broken with modern linked-chapter-files from anime fansubbers
- doesn't support correctly all the RealAudio codecs (should be
trivial to fix once you have a sample.)
The current lavf demuxer lacks:
- chapters (maybe just our wrapper to lavf)
- many codecs
- mka support
I believe that rewriting one from scratch is stupid, but reusing another
one might make sense.
