I guess using -infbuf fixes your usecase as well, right? Without -infbuf 
ffplay buffers 25 frames, so for 25 fps video content, if playing stops, 
this means that it is unable to acquire the first few packets of a 
new segment within 1 second. Is this really the case?

Do you have a public test stream where this can be tested?
