ffmpeg exit code incorrect

Description

I think I found an inconsistency in the exit code of fmpeg when reading http stream:

if I give ffmpeg a incorrect input url
ffmpeg -i http://....
which is not found on the streaming server then ffmpeg report
"HTTP error 404 Not Found"
and exit code is 1
I think this is correct as ffmpeg completes with an error,
so exit code !=0

If input url is correct and it starts reading it and so on (save the stream for example),
and after a while, the server return again "HTTP error 404 Not Found" for some chunk
then ffmpeg exit with code 0.

I think this is incorrect because ffmpeg ended with an error,
so it should return something other then 0.

if I give ffmpeg a incorrect input url

ffmpeg -i ​http://.../livestream_a/playlist.m3u8 <<<< incorrect
ffmpeg -i http://.../livestream_ao/playlist.m3u8 <<< this is the correct one

which is not found on the streaming server then ffmpeg report
"HTTP error 404 Not Found"
and exit code is 1
I think this is correct as ffmpeg completes with an error,
so exit code !=0

command and output


ffmpeg started on 2019-03-23 at 08:19:24
Report written to "/home/raz/radio.log"

./ffmpeg -hide_banner -user_agent "VLC/3.0.6 LibVLC/3.0.6" -i http://.../livestream_a/playlist.m3u8 -y -nostats -c copy -bsf:a aac_adtstoasc /home/raz/radio.aac
[http @ 0x562df80] HTTP error 404 Not Found

if input url is correct and it starts reading it and so on (save the stream for example),
and after a while, the server return again "HTTP error 404 Not Found" for some chunk
then ffmpeg exit with code 0.
This I cannot reproduce anytime as it depends on the streaming server to have a glitch of some sort

ffmpeg exit code=0

I think this is incorrect because ffmpeg ended with an error,
so it should return something other then 0.
