Yes, i know, thanks. However the avplay binary from debian multimedia 
was linked to the libav* libraries from debian multimedia (so the 
ffmpeg.org version), so all worked fine. Now, i've removed 
deb-multimedia and replaced to have the main deb repository versions 
(so, from libav)

The conclusion of the test is that avplay from ffmpeg.org reads the 
stream smoothly, but not avplay from libav. I don't know if it can be of 
any help/interest to libav developpers.

I have a workaround for the problem, even if i'm not really happy with it.

If devs need more info on this topic, i can provide examples, version 
numbers, etc
