I am not an expert on the topic, but I understood that AMR is a very tightly
compressed codec, such that frame size and bit rate can vary.
If I am right, it is not possible to seek a raw AMR file efficiently: there is
no index and no good way to convert time offset into file offset.
In any case, parsing AMR is done by libavformat and libavcodec from the FFmpeg
project, not directly by the VideoLAN project.
