~20MB for me. And yes, video is played with repetitions in some places.
As I can see while downloading server sends many times sequence of the commands:


I think this cause a problem with repetitions while playing. But when we use player
from the site I can see that there is no NetStream.Pause.Notify and other commands
from this sequence in the stream. So, behavior of the server is different for their player
and for rtmpdump.
