The problem is that the current (primitive) code waits forever to detect
a video packet to know its PID. Audio-only streams are not yet really
One workaround is to mix in some video dummy stream, another is to fool
the detection: If you first play a short video clip, and then start the
audio stream, streamplayer already has found a PID for video and
continues playing even if no video data arrives. This should work even
if the http stream reconnects, just exiting and re-starting streamplayer
will trigger a new detection.
