Rewinding/fast forwarding above 3X doesn't work with libmpeg2, but does with Standard/ffmpeg

I use ATrpms 0.20-fixes r13228 (and ATrpms libmpeg2_0-0.4.1-3 and ATrpms ffmpeg 0.4.9-19_r7407, all on Fedora Core 6 64-bit on EM64T), but this is a problem I've had since my first days of MythTV more than a year ago.

Rewinding or fast forwarding recordings--whether HD or not--during playback has never worked right for me. 3X works fine as far as I can tell, but any faster speed (5X, 10X, etc.) means that the video will stop "moving" after four or five seconds. Pushing Play always resumes playback normally, so it's not quite a duplicate of #745 or #2434 (which involve different hardware, anyway).

I never bothered to report the issue because time skips are a very adequate substitute. However, very recently I've discovered that this is only an issue with the libmpeg2 decoder; using the Standard/ffmpeg decoder does permit rewinds and fast forwards to work properly. (I don't know whether in the past this issue existed with both decoders, but that's the way things stand right now.)

Not a MythTV bug. libmpeg2 just abandones decoding when it doesn't have enough time, this is why we force ffmpeg for preview generation.
