Is there an option in ffmpeg to make it read just sequencially from start to end of the file, without attempting to check if there is eventually metadata at the end of the file?
The backround is that i seem to face a situation where the bare presence of a footer in a .mxf file (plus index repetition) causes massive processing errors.
Actually it is not about ffmpeg.exe but libavcodec that is utilized by some 3rdparty software, but this 3rdparty software does allow me to specify ffmpeg options for mxf file opening.
Deleting a few bytes, like 10kb of the end of the 40Gb input file lead to process the file correctly, thats why i am asking for a way to force sequencial reading.
I tried using -re option but it still parses the "footer" information.
