I'm back on that one.

We can't just use the min() values;
Because MainLoopInterface calls demuxer, it won't correctly update
GET_TIME/POSITION/LENGTH, as they still are at demux position, not
playback time.

One fix is done at ES_OUT_SET_TIMES level which removes the buffering
value from the GET_TIME, when buffering. But this doesn't updates
POSITION or LENGTH. We'll always have strange behavior in UI regarding
position and time then.

I guess a way to deal with this would be to track position on blocks
accordingly (pts being already time), but is that doable by design ?
