Well, its' not a different file, in the end the same .FLV file will be
downloaded and played by the Flash Plugin, but as the Flash Plugin does not
allow to directly open a .FLV file, you have to go through the website and the
.SWF around it to play it...

I did some more tests. I tried the official Flash 7 SDK (which I have access to
but obviously cannot share) and this one renders the same "errors". The only
player that seems to play this stream correctly is the current Flash 9 plugin,
but I assume now that they somehow detect and conceal the error, so I rest my
case for now.

Thanks and Regards,
