How to load video in chunks using expo-av video component?

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 45.0
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): all
  3. Add the appropriate “Tag” based on what Expo library you have a question on.

Hey, I want to display a large video on my expo app, and I would like to know if there’s a way to download chunks of the video instead of downloading it as a whole.

I’ve already set up my backend to accept a Range header and return the bytes of the video corresponding to the Range passed, but now I want to know how to find out what bytes of the video the component needs to load and send that to my backend.

My goal is to have a video being played while you’re still downloading it, just like youtube does. Thanks in advance.
