Fix seeking after repeat

Nicolas Pomepuy requested to merge Aza/vlc-android:fix_seeking into master

I'd like @Dekans to review this commit as it may have side effects I couldn't think of!


When playing a video in repeat mode, after the first loop, the seek was broken.

Technical explanation:

When seeking the time is retrieved by VideoPlayerActivity.time. This time is calculated and take VideoPlayerActivity.forcedTime into account. This parameter was not reset when the loop ended resulting in its value being larger than the video's length. This commit only resets it when the MediaPlayer.Event.Opening event is raised.
