I've reproduced it a lot now, using both wget and gnash with the same
URL each time.

The difference is just in the "sourcedata" field of the container
metadata / header. No idea why, but it evidently has nothing to do with
playback. Also clearly not a bug on the retrieval side, as it would
hardly just manipulate a couple of bytes always in the same place.


Use Gnash, the GNU Flash Player!
