It is standard parlance in networking: stream protocols produce a stream
of octets, without any additional structure, while packet protocols
produce packets, which are delimited at protocol level and visible by
the application, and can be empty.

FFmpeg distinguishes packet protocols with the max_packet_size: if it is
0, it is a stream protocol, if not a packet protocol.
