 > I have a patch fixing this bug at http://ffmpeg.org/pipermail/ffmpeg-

 Thanks for the patch from a user. Had the same problem with an internet
 stream, which issued a series of EXT-X-DISCONTINUITY tags from time to
 time thus making ffmpeg croak ("Non-monotonous DTS in output stream"
 aplenty, finally it stopped producing output). Your patch fixes that,

 Partly because vlc, with which I relay the stream on LAN, still
 occasionally complains about timestamps upon remuxing. But now it at least
 recovers autonomously, and no restart is required. Which I previously had
 to do every two hours or so.

 So the patch is of real benefit here, and I specifically registered on
 this site to convey my appreciation.
