In the past, ffmpeg used a ffmpeg-specific user agent 
when opening http streams, it now uses a common string 
to allow access to http servers that expect a "normal" 

Workaround is to use:
$ ffmpeg -user-agent something_random -i http://radio.retro-retro.ru

See ticket #2265 for a similar (Google-) page that 
also behaves strangely, unfortunately in the 
opposite way.
