asf file fails to play

file found in wild has data before asf header. this prevents it from being demuxed. removing the first 12 bytes or so of the file allows it to be played.

test1.wmv: Invalid data found when processing input

also does not work with -f asf_o

mplayer and vlc fail to play file. even older wmplayer fails to play original file.

is it possible to increase asf probing?
