JSI Tip 8727. Media Player returns an NS_E_INVALID_DATA error when playing Fast Cached content?

When you playh content from a Media Player 10, or Media Player 9, 'server', with Fast Cache enabled, the client receives:

0xC00D002F: Invalid or corrupt data was encountered.

This behavior will occur if Media Player detects that the previous sample is more than five minutes old, compared to a current sample. While this typically indicates an error, a sparse script stream may have a large increase in the timestamp between samples.
