Maybe you're talking about this? Please provide example links, then I can tell if the stream has one or more playlists.
Oh! I'll bet that is what was happening. I was seeing some weird things like a part1 more than a GB, then a part2 a few MB, then the next part more than a GB again. After seeing what you said there, that was probably the streamer messing with something mid-stream.

I haven't been seeing the multi-part-download and merging thing again since I posted. And there are two streamers I watch who were having streaming issues for some days lately, so it very well could have been from them trying to figure things out mid-stream. I just had no idea that can cause a single stream download to have multiple parts which then get merged. That's something I had never seen before.

And then suddenly seeing it happen a number of times, I mistakenly got the idea something about twitch downloading in JD2 had been changed so every twitch download would be multi-part and merging at the end. Very glad to realize that was completely wrong

Here's a link I'm 99% sure was one of the ones I saw do the merging at the end, if you still want a link to check:

That vod will probably get auto-deleted in a little over a week, btw, so you don't try to check it after it's gone.

My ISP was having net outages in my area (not problems specifically at my place) several times within a little over a week, and then for several days the net was stalling occasionally (for much shorter periods of time - maybe roughly five to ten minutes on average I'd say).

I didn't think to make logs from any of the downloads affected by that, because I thought (due to unreliable internet causing the downloads to behave strange) that it wasn't really a JD2 issue.

But now I realize that I should have made logs for those. It might be a while before anything like that happens (hopefully, cause it would mean my net's having issues again). But I'll post logs here if I see net issues cause download completion to act strange again.
