They are pretty much gone now, though I did see one TLS out of about 3
hours running (3.84s chunks)

Another user who is testing the same live stream saw eight
TLS @ 0xae75700" referring to TLS packets of unexpected length.
over a 3 hour run.

One issue that I guess is not really a bug, but on a live stream you
really need to have your clock either spot on or slow.

Ok, so maybe I should run ntpd "properly" - though not running it does
offer a workaround of setting clock back a bit (the stream mpd below has
a 10 minute buffer).

This issue = even if set my clock with ntpd -q only a small amount of
too fast drift will lead to (after a couple of hours)

[https @ 0x365e580] HTTP error 404 Not Found
[dash @ 0x3657360] Failed to open fragment of playlist 0

ntpd -q showed I was 0.2 sec fast at that point - for the purpose of
testing just setting one sec fast will quickly start getting 404s which
are not retried, so break the stream.

I notice there is a time url in the mpd - but even if that were used
initially vs clock, I still think drift would break things.

Here's the .mpd (same as link I gave before - pasting as I suspect it's
geo restricted).
