Sorry, but this version does not help much.

Without patch ffplay & mplayer can play dumped TS packets.
With patch mplayer plays fine whereas ffplay only plays audio (no video),
and softdevice only has some audible clicks.

My main concern is that softdevice  PlayTs*() never gets called and
while writing these lines, I found the typo PlayTS vs PlayTs.
