Hi Experts:

I use ffmpeg to parse/demux media content, and created a player basing on

here is a m3u8 content:
there are three video track in it.

I found all video/audio tracks are downloaded during playback, and I can
switch different track on the fly.
however, it consumes much bandwidth since all tracks are downloaded.

even when I append bandwidth to the url; still the same result:

Is there any way to download the specified track only to save bandwidth?
