 Sorry for the duplicate messages - I asked about this on irc last night,
 and didn't get an answer, so posted it to the mailing list.  Then burek
 suggested I file a bug report.

 I'm trying to build a simple Android streamer using ffmpeg.  Everything is
 working well, except that for some mp3 streams av_read_frame() returns an
 error (-541478725) after playing for 1-2 minutes.  The same problem
 happens when using ffplay in Linux (0.8.6)

 The stream plays fine with Chrome.  Also I can download the mp3 and then
 it plays fine with ffplay.

 One example bad stream is

 Once av_read_frame returns an error, it never works again until I restart
 the stream.  Worst-case, is there any way to skip past and keep playing?
