The built in controls for ogg files behave strangely for files with durations over ~10 hours but with sizes under 2^31 bytes (files over 2^31 bytes are unseekable, but thats another bug)

For example

In this case the seek can only be moved to the *left* of the starting point.


Where only the first 9 hours are reachable and the playhead moves off the end of the control.

Reproducible: Always

Tested on Linux and Mac

This does look controls specific - seeking works if you use the JavaScript API directly on the video.

Isn't this a duplicate of #500784?

No. Its a separate and distinct issue. It has nothing to do with the number of bytes in a file and I specifically provided an examples less than 2GB in size to differentiate these two failure modes.  It's also limited to controls behaviour, whereas the other issue is more general.
I can't reproduce this on trunk.  Is anyone else still seeing it?

This was fixed at some point.
