It seems the .flv files produced by livestreamer for downloaded VODs are sometimes corrupted. This is reproducible with this particular VOD:

While the VOD download was aborted with Ctrl+C, the full VOD also exhibits the same problem.

This was a weird issue. Looks like any broadcast created after Twitch announced their new VOD changes contains an extra Script Data tag that causes my serializer to mess something up (I'll have to figure out why later). Simply ignoring it fixes the issue for now, sorry for the inconvenience.
