Your problem is probably not in the system layer, but in the 
elementary stream layer. MPEG video decoding needs to have a sequence 
header ; on most MPEG-1 files, the sequence header is only at the 
beginning of the stream, thus it can be retrieved if you catch the 
stream at random. MPEG-2 files cope with it by repeating the sequence 
header periodically.
