Probing a single sequence is *weak*.
and data has no alignment guarantee.

Hence the demuxers priorities and the packetizer based demuxers and
multiple frames probing for most audio codecs. (and libav has even more
intensive probing)

Putting this as stream filter gives it higher priority than any demuxer.

Will break any non aligned, sync code based, if the stream starts with
"\x6B\x66\x11" (raw video, raw audio, ts, ps...), where demux with low
score would not.
