Error in the http_protocol of ffmpeg ?

Chii Sama

I've found an strange behavior playing a file over http with ffmpeg /
I'm not sure, it's a bug in the http_protocol modul of ffmpeg or in my
video files (i have may that works normal and many that have this
strange behaviour).

The file itself has only 3.4 megabyte, but ffplay or ffmpeg transfers
over 17 megabytes from the webserver to show this file.
In the first few second the used bandwidth is ok (150 kb/sec) but then
over 2 megabytes per second is transfered.
At the end, the webserver has sent 4 times more bytes then the file size
so its not only buffering.

Can somebody validate / explain this behavior ?

The file is accessable here :
