Speex is a stateful encoder. As it encodes the audio, the state
changes. As it decodes, the state changes. You're trying to start
somewhere in the middle with the initial state rather than with the
state it would have if you started from the beginning and decoded it
all. As you've noticed, it can recover from lost frames over time.
This is just repeating what Lakhdar Bourokba already said though.
As for your question about the header, it really depends on how you're
saving the encoded file.
