Yes, readahead the list is must.
but during playback, I found ffmpeg downloads each content of the list
-- av_read_frame() returns me each content with different stream_index.
I'm expecting av_read_frame() returns me the interested stream only.
I haven't found a way to do so; or said, is there ffmpeg interface to
specify a dedicate stream (stream_index) to download.
i'm looking into hls.c; there is recheck_discard_flags(), seems it is
designed to do some policy like this.
but I haven't found one top level interface of ffmpeg for it.
recheck_discard_flags() is called once only during hls_read_packet() when
c->first_packet is set -- this flag is set in hls_read_header() only.
