I don't understand if "cat file1.m2ts file1.m2ts >test1.ts" and "cat file2.m2ts file2.m2ts >test2.ts" do work for you.
I can play them correctly.

Is it possibile to update the AVCodecContext or AVFormatContext instead of closing and re-opening the decoder?
Or is the decoder close and reopen fast enough to provide a smooth playback upon stream change?

Thank you
