This video seems to have somehow hit a gap in the audio stream:

I've seen this happening from time to time. No eviction occurred, yet the gap was there.. Seems to I dicate to me a bug with youtube.
We've got 1 audio decoder with two time ranges, but we only append to an existing decoder if the end of one time range matches the start of the next. Something is not right. I'll try to get a log.
one possibility would be that the data passed to appendBuffer doesn't start with a moof or styp, but instead the previous segment contained a partial moof, or contained a moof+partial mdat.

We don't handle partial media segment at this stage.

[Tracking Requested - why for this release]:
I have a way to reproduce the issue consistently now thanks to info provided by Google. 
I'm hoping I'll have it done this week-end. 

I hope this is the last case that can cause stalls in YouTube

Attached patch imported patch _p2.patch (obsolete) — Splinter Review
If a moof is incomplete, MoofParser::mOffset would be updated causing this moof to never be parsed again, leading to gaps in the buffered range. Ideally, Box.IsAvailable() should return false if we don't have the entire data available in the stream. To come.
Attachment #8577613 - Flags: review?(ajones)
Can return a sample if we found one moof, so do so only abort if we found no valid moof.

Only consider a box as available if entire content is present. Avoid having non properly handled partial read.

Looks like we're undefing the wrong things here. Should be LOG, TOSTIRNG, STRINGIFY, __func__.

Suggestion: It probably belongs in a separate header file.
