Sorry, that was a bit of an exaggeration. What actually happens with
flvstreamer is that streaming is periodically dropped and resumed every
time the server makes a SWF Verification request. That can sometimes
lead to hangs or artifacts in the recording, depending on the quality of
your upstream connection. Using rtmpdump prevents the continual
dropping/resuming of the stream because it can respond to the SWF
Verification requires. However, rtmpdump may occasionally drop/resume
the stream if the connection times out, etc.
