File does not play with melt (only first frames), but works in ffplay, so it looks like an MLT issue

Further info.. the SOHO videos are encoded using the University of California Berkeley codec.. "MPEG stream encoded by UCB Encoder (mpeg_encode) v1.5". The quote is from the file "current_eit_195.mpg" header area.

I'll attach a view of the top of the video mpg file in HEX which may help a little if the fix just ID'ing an existing codec in the libs or such.

$ ffmpeg -i current_eit_195.mpg

[mpegvideo @ 0x63a3c0]Estimating duration from bitrate, this may be inaccurate
  Duration: 00:00:00.27, bitrate: 104856 kb/s

ffmpeg is unable to determine the duration. MLT requires a duration to support editing and random access. ffplay does play it longer than that duration because it is not an editor. If you try seeking in ffplay (click along horizontal axis of video window), you will see that it does not work correctly.

In the latest release, Kdenlive includes a "Fix MPEG-1" transcode profile that creates an usable copy of this file without quality loss.
