It may be too much. We only know of 3 video files, which don't play on the
Apple player. We don't know how they got produced, what produced them, what
caused them to have this deviation, if it was done intentionally or by
accident, nor do we know why Apple chooses to deviate in their playback from
other players, why exactly it fails and where else it fails apart from these 3
files. We really only know about 3 files, which could have already been fixed
with the help of ffmpeg and without applying any patches to it. So I wouldn't
take it this too far. Patches are supposed to be simple and one should try to
make then even simpler, so say the rules of the project.
