That's right. There's no way for libvorbisfile to find out how long a stream
is if it's not seekable - there could be an indefinate amount of information

Do you really need to allocate a buffer for the entire stream? That could be
awfully large. I'd not recommend this approach, unless you know with complete
certainty that the streams will always be extremely short (say... less than a
couple of seconds long).
If you absolutely _must_ do things this way, then you'll have to tell
libvorbisfile that your "file" is seekable: if the underlying datasource is
seekable, this is simple: you just need to make the seek/tell functions work
relative to the start/end of your sub-file within your archive.
