Whole video is loaded when streaming from Jellyfin

When I stream a video, the whole video is loaded in the timeline which is bad.
If my movie is 2 hours long, it literally loads the whole movie in some minutes of playtime.
If I leave the movie too early, all the loaded movie is left unused for no use hence wasted bandwidth.
Instead it should have a limit of loading it like YouTube does. It should be something we can configure in settings. This will save a lot of bandwidth and resources.

You can see here that literally whole video is fetched even when i just started it.

Haven’t used it myself, but you could try changing

Settings → Playback → Streaming cache

to Memory Only
