Summary of the bug:
When playing an iPhone MOV file over http, playback will stutter.
File plays well locally.
How to reproduce:
Sample can be found at:
Copy the file to a local web server.
(sorry if it's a bit big, this is a 1 minute iPhone 5 video. Can't easily shorten it as it's a trailing moov atom file.)
Notice that it will take several seconds for playback to start (even using gigabit ethernet), once playback start, after a few seconds it will start to stutter greatly.
For background information: I'm giving the example of using ffplay. I can reproduce the issue with MythTV (that uses ffmpeg release/1.1) and is an issue I'm trying to solve there.
The issue is encountered when using AirPlay from the iPhone/iPad "Photos" application and trying to stream a video.
