Bug Description

Some private websites like colbertnation.com use mtvnservices.com to deliver Flash videos. Trying to watch mtvnservices Flash file, lightspark freezes.

The link I tried was: http://media.mtvnservices.com/mgid:cms:video:comedycentral.com:215454 It's for the video in http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colbert-report-videos/215454/january-08-2009/lawrence-lessig

gdb output is available http://trisquel.pastebin.com/82ThngLF

I use Lightspark 0.4.4.3 from the official PPA on Trisquel 4.0.1.

Lightspark freezes for a while when loading the video and eventually failed with an "unsupported flash file" message:
"Cause: o .../scripting/flashsystem.cpp:129". This was running a build from a few revisions behind master.

Running current master, LS just doesn't do anything (yet).

This player from mtvnservices.com is also not supported: http://media.mtvnservices.com/player/prime/mediaplayerprime.2.3.4.swf

I'm running archlinux and lightspark compiled from git today.
