    Sudden change in bytesTotal on bandwidth fluctuation causing video to stop playing




      I have problem in streaming FLV over an HTTP protocol, with fluctuating bandwidth. When an another application sharing the bandwidth is opened/closed, the flash player experiences sudden Play.Stop event for the FLV. The player uses a netstream class and its objects and events. On further investigation, I discovered that the total bytes (bytesTotal property) reduces suddenly to the current loaded bytes (bytesLoaded property of the netstream object), and eventually the video abruptly ends when the buffer is empty post this premature Play.Stop event.


      I could only find a timeout specification for FMS server, but nothing for Apache, from where my media content is delivered to clients. What could be the reason for this unexpected Play.Stop event?
