I also compiled on 64 bit (AMD64 Ubuntu Maverick) to try to fix
downloading a stream greater than 4G (BBC Olympic opening ceremony). I
tried compiling the library with " _FILE_OFFSET_BITS = 64" enabled.
This didn't work either. So I think that the problem is another 32 bit
overflow somewhere else in rtmpdump.
