seekable streams are usually outputting data at a set time rate. I understand

time limit to seekable streams (reading 584104 does not immediately tell me why
this should be so).

Adding the time limit for non seekable streams allows my unseekable UDP
streamed MPEG/TS radio stream to preroll again, which makes me happy, so I'd
