#2012 new defect

when playing large mkv files over a pipe, demuxer lavf fails

Description

if you do cat verylarge.mkv | mplayer -demuxer lavf -lavfdopts format=matroska -

lavf will fail to find an index (which is at the end of the file) and fail to play.

if you add -noidx it works.

shouldnt we be setting -noidx on stdout playback for lavf demuxer?

also works with -demuxer mkv...
