I don't think it should push data as it comes in for many reasons..
First, it already needs to cache at least 3 fragments before it starts pushing
buffers, so pushing data as it receives it would change nothing since it's
technically not "live", it needs to put that data into the cache.
As it downloads, many things could cause a cancellation of the download, a
change state, a seek, a change of bitrate, etc.. and if it pushes data as it
receives it, it makes things much more complicated if it needs to cancel a
download and start another one (and redownload the same fragment with a
different bitrate).
Currently it will just cancel the download, flush whatever it cached from that
fragment then restart.
I'd vote for marking this bug as invalid.
