Hi, thank you for you response,

I want nginx to continuously send Continuation requests including the
next chunk.
I want to make this point because some applications cannot read
playlist files (.m3u) ,I thought about developing a python api which
sends packets (http CONTINUATION) ==> the client of course his
application can estimate that there is another chunk.

I'm waiting for your response. Thank you
