[FFmpeg-user] Detect Aborted HTTP Stream

When streaming a non-seekable http response (without Content-Length in
response) that is cancelled on server side, ffmpeg doesn't seem to provide
any warning and it looks to the user like everything worked fine.

Is there any container or options that could at least print a warning if
the connection was closed by the server before the entire stream was
downloaded, e.g. missing trailer?

I have only tried with webm and mkv containers so far. Is there some
streamable demuxer that will fail/warn when not receiving a proper trailer?
