FS#7989 - WMA Seeking

At preglow’s request, here are the two patches that have been floating around for seeking in WMA.

The first works, but is slow and inaccurate. Theres a good chance you’ll end up in the next song if you seek too far.

The second doesn’t work at all for some reason, but should be much faster when fixed. It works like the first, but does a binary search for the correct ASF packet and attempts to restart playback at the new one. I spent ~15 minutes debugging it and ran out of time. If someone else wants to take a look at it, I’m sure its not that hard to fix. Actually seeking in general with WMA is quite simple, I just don’t have time to debug it.

Otherwise I’ll finish it as soon as my workload eases up.

Fixed most of the problems in the V2 patch. Seems stable in the Sim on my files, and seeks efficiently. Will need more testing before I add it to SVN.

this is easier to explain it
