Here is my rtmpdump command, which I got with rtmppsrv for this video:
rtmpdump -r "rtmp://video-102-1.rutube.ru:1935/vod/" -a "vod/" \
 -f "LNX 10,3,162,29" \
-W "http://rutube.ru/player.swf" \
-p "http://rutube.ru/tracks/4322127.html" \
-y \
 -o test.flv

This command downloads full video. So. I think it could be problems of 
video-1-14.rutube.ru server.
As for 100% cpu usage, you could try patch from Peter Miller:
