I tried to do a test against V2.3 but I couldn't get V2.3 to fail today (I was 
using Ctrl-C to interrupt the downloads so the test conditions are probably 

V2.4 does seem to fix the bug where the %age downloaded was being reset to 0 
when a resume happened.

I will continue using it and see what happens.

Or, if you want to easily compare the new rtmpdump with the old one, skip the 
checkinstall and the ldconfig but replace the make command shown there with:

make VERSION="v2.4\ $version~git" SHARED=

This creates a static-linked version of rtmpdump so you can just use the 
--flvstreamer option to point to it when you want to use it.
