yes, that file was generated by vlc. :)
if you do not wish to support any error-tolerance, then tell me how to
generate a strem by _anything_, which after I save the stream to disk from
network at any given point can be played by libavcodec.. that's my first
priority, and I do not care which program I use. The only thing that
matters, that I must be able to specify the bandwidth of the stream which
will be generated.
