There is no mention of this in the spec ... The spec actually says
that after the header the remaining data would be flvtags until the
end of file.

So I believe that another flv header can not be part of a valid flv
file ... ffmpeg can't play a concatenated flv anyways ... It will
choke when it see another flv header and assume it's flv packet type
70 ("F") with a size of 5002753 ("LV",0x01).
