[FFmpeg-user] fmp4 streaming issues

thanks for your time.
Well, I would love to use a single way of transportation. Currently, I 
have to work with HLS and DASH side by side ...
SRT is not wanted at the moment. We have our own build script that also 
builds all libs from source incl. svt-av1 which we heavily rely on.
Basically we put hevc, avc1 and av1 all into fragmented mp4.
I will try to integrate your patch asap, but for some reason it seems 
(still testing) that when using byte-range requests this issue does not 
come up.
At least not with the test stream provided by nuevodevel which is 
basically VideoJS 7 here: 
The only difference to my stream seems to be the byte-range request 
instead of pulling file based m4s segments.

I will report back.

Thanks so far,
