Allow seeking in streaming ringbuffer

Hi Mark,

Could you possibly have a look at this ticket? It checks the URLContext to see if an item is streamed on open, and then uses that variable to set whether or not seeking is allowed. Seeking backwards also appears to work for me.

You have seen more of this content than I have, so only you would know if it's correct. With this patch applied I am doing alright with video podcasts and some other streamed content.

Robert - I've spent enough time looking at the current streaming ringbuffer code to decide that it's just not fit for purpose. I'm going to re-write it along the lines of the Qt based approach taken by Lawrence Rust for the MHEG IPlayer patch (ticket #10019)
