It plays for less than a second, and then quits. The file is 65 megs, and plays with a bunch of decode errors in MPlayer.

This fixes the premature EOS issue:

    avidemux: skip JUNK (chunks in data section in streaming mode
    Skip JUNK tags in streaming mode as well instead of EOSing
    prematurely. Fixes #564100.

There's already bug #568555 about the interlaced MJPEG not being handled correctly.
