This multiple-part change to twitch downloading worries me. (Sorry for the long explanation that follows).
Twitch uses HLS(video/stream is split in many many small parts) since the beginning and JDownloader uses ffmpeg to merge those parts into one file. Resume has never been supported for HLS downloads and it always has been 1 part at a time.
So nothing has changed at all for Twitch support.
