WARNING: Stream does not start with requested FLV frame

A tip that may or may not help people with this problem:
I've been having this issue for a while now, it seems a programme will
either work fine or always fail at the same point, usually around 60MB in. I
normally use the "--modes=flashvhigh" paramater, but using
"--modes=flashvhigh2" is giving me much better success, haven't had one fail
yet since trying that.
Worth a try....!

I had this problem when I did a fresh install (2.79). I had an older version
of flvstreamer (1.8) on my old disk and by using this
(--flvstreamer) I avoid the problem. Not sure what I lose out on otherwise?
