[Matroska-devel] File with no SeekHead

mkvinfo is a developer tool that doesn't interpret the values (too
much). In this case this means that it simply prints the raw values of
the elements beneath Cues. The interpretation ( = adding them to the
segment data start position in order to retrieve the absolute file
position) is up to the user.

I don't really get what you mean by "...create one that is referenced
off the first level 1 element". Can you please paste mkvinfo's output
(with -v -v, possibly remove all cluster-related information, upload
it somewhere)?

Kind regards,
