There is always metadata in a FLAC stream, for example, the samplerate, 
number of channels used, FLAC encoder version etc. This is called the 
STREAMINFO block. This is the very first block of the stream. This state 
tells that the decoder is still looking for that block.

So it seems there's something wrong in the data transfer, as FLAC can't 
find the first block in the stream. I can think of three things: there 
is no data received at all (because there is something wrong with the 
connection or because it isn't sent at all), the data transferred is 
corrupted/transformed somewhere or there is something wrong in the 
process of reading data from the network stream.

Have you tried plain wav data first? That's a lot easier to 
troubleshoot, you can make sure the problem is not in the 
network-related stuff.
