Default HLS filesize changing

I dont know if it normal or weird because when i'm using youtube-dl or other software, it just download exactly filesize from start. With JD, filesize changing from high to low or low to high, but video is still watchable

HLS filesize isn't known in advance because each segment can have different filesize and thus the final filesize changes during download because the estimation know about past segments and estimates the average size of the following segments and overall filesize

Most likely youtube-dl doesn't usw HLS for downloading but progressive mp4.
See Settings->Plugins->xvideos and enable/disable *prefer HLS"
