Ok thank you Rémi and Jean-Baptiste for your quick answer :-)

I'm still not clear in my mind with all that stuff...

If I run VLC against a MPD file (DASH playlist) where I have replaced
URLs to 3gp/s fragments by URLs to Smooth Streaming fragments (see
below), I get flooded by "[mp3 @ 0xb6f3dd60] Header missing" messages.
Strange isn't it ?

This mail might be really dumb, please forgive me if it actually is :-)
