Hi Andrew

As the author of this patch I can confirm it worked for me on a linux 
host with a video+audio  file.

You might want to try the option '-re' (realtime samples) - that made a 
difference for me. There are delays in the way Akamai streams and if you 
dump everything out as fast as possible it seems that the stream 
terminates before the content propagates. At least that's my theory.

There is also a different Akamai test player that might be more suitable 
for your (apparently) audio-only stream:


that gives you a lot of detail about what arrives.
