Showtime never gives up on a HLS segment it is unable to open

This occurs rarely, but reliably watching Twitch.tv streams. From reading the log, it seems the segment 404's, but showtime never stops trying to open it, to the point of degrading performance and requiring a restart. At the very least it should give up after some number of tries, but ideally it would reload the stream too.
I'm reporting in 4.7.486, but I've noticed it in older builds too. Example log attached.
#6 Updated by Andreas Smas over 6 years ago
I've modified the segment open code to periodically fail to open a segment (as a test modification of course :-)
During this I've tested and modified the code so it now alternate among all the different bitrates trying to stay on the one with the least amount of errors.
