Sorry I didn't see this thread earlier. Only noticed because I got email 
saying the bug is now closed. I submitted the sample and it was created using 
an rtmpdump from a connection to an nginx-rtmp server.

I don't know if it is valid or not. The flv documentation does not seem to 
indicate if any of the rules for the flv are any more flexible in a streaming 
context as opposed to the static file context. If it is of any consequence, the 
browser flash plugin from Adobe doesn't seem to have any issue with the DTS
