Reproduction steps

This consistently seems to happen to files recorded from OBS-studio 0.16.6-1, when the mkv format is used. Examples attached below.
It's very possible that OBS is spitting out malformed files, but the same files work in VLC and totem so I figured I'd start here.

  1. Play video
  2. seek to any point

Expected behavior

audio playback

Actual behavior

no audio playback

@Alloyed According to the commit, 3b5777d - this is a bug in FFmpeg. It is creating bad mkv files that isn't marking audio packets as keyframes, or something like that. If you have time, please report the bug upstream ( so it gets fixed there too. ;-)
