If the metadata packet is corrupted, flv_read_metabody can accidentally
read past the start of the next packet. If the start of the  next packet
had been flushed out of the IO buffer, we would be unable to seek to
the right position (on a nonseekable stream).

Prefer to clearly error out instead of silently  trying to read from a
desynced stream which will only be interpreted as garbage.
