So in this case, the Ogg demuxer will, on 3 occasions, get to the end of an Ogg stream without getting to the end of the physical data stream. I can think of two possibilities.
1- Consider that it is the responsibility of the player (or frontend) to restart another Ogg demux session if it finds another Ogg header.
2- Consider that it is the responsibility of the Ogg demuxer to silently ignore all other data until it finds another Ogg header or comes to the end of the physical data stream.
Which is the most favorable?
