rtmpdump should allow to record a sample.

Allow me to explain that it is extremely unlikely 
that a developer will work on a ticket that does 
not nearly contain enough information to allow 
fixing it, as you may have seen there is a large 
number of open and reproducible tickets.

Posting your patch on ffmpeg-devel could be an 
alternative (as said, there is a very long history 
of patches that are ignored on trac, this is why 
the New Ticket page says "Patches should be 
submitted to the ffmpeg-devel mailing list and not 
this bug tracker." - if you believe this sentence 
can be improved, please tell us).
