Shouldn't it just return INT64_MAX (which should have a proper 
name/define) ? In that case the vout considers it's paused.

IMO, contrary to what is done now, the first frame should not be 
displayed ASAP but when its time has come. A file could start with 5s of 
audio and then the video starts. There's no reason the first frame 
should be shown when the source intentionally didn't have something to
