I've had similar behaviour on occasion from using a version of ffmpeg to
record the stream into an mkv container. The solution may be to try using
ffmpeg -i inputfile -acodec copy outputfile
as that tends to 'tidy up' things. Doesn't always work, but worth a try.
Thanks for the suggestion. I did try that, which would have had the effect
of tidying up or replacing the container while leaving the content
unchanged. It was not enough. There were still problems with the FLAC
content which prevented it from playing even in VLC v2.2.6. I had to use
ffmpeg with -f=flac to tidy up the FLAC content.
