Thread: hls skipping redownloads chunk

    Question hls skipping redownloads chunk

    In HLS streaming, after playing the video, if we skip to a previous point which has already been watched, it redownloads the chunk from that point, and has a pause until it downloads again.
    Why does this happen? Isn't the previous chunk already downloaded, why does it have to download it again?
    Trying to get smooth skipping on previously downloaded chunks.

    Thank you

    It's a player question that I don't have an answer for
