I have been told that:-

Use rtmpdump, not flvstreamer.

If you use flvstreamer, the download will keep stopping and restarting.
And flvstreamer/rtmpdump are *really* bad at resuming an existing
download. You often have to delete the file and start again.

Please can anyone their comment!

How do I get rid of flvstreamer, and were do I get rtmpdump from and how is it installed?

Thank you

Richard
