As far as I know one and only one SREAMINFO should be present at the
beginning of the file:

"A FLAC bitstream consists of the "fLaC" marker at the beginning of the
stream, followed by a mandatory metadata block (called the STREAMINFO
block), any number of other metadata blocks, then the audio frames."
