gst-plugins-good avidemux duration query patch.

AVI demux reports wrong duration info for some samples.

Usually in pull mode the duration was calculated from indexing information which is always accurate (stream->duration).

In PUSH mode duration was taken from header(If stream->duration is invalid avi->duration is takes into consideration) which some times wrong for some samples.

In this case the stream->hdr_duration contains the appropriate duration info.

Changing the duration query logic to take stream->hdr_duration into consideration before falling back to avi->duration seems to be working fine with these samples.

Please find the attached patch which is working for these samples.

Thanks, but that link/site doesn't work for me with any browser I have installed. It always tells me that this site doesn't support my browser and asks me to update chrome/mozilla...
