Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0
Build ID: 20150514102509

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open a streaming service such as http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/live/bbcone
2. Play it for a while


Actual results:

1. Disk cache entries are steadily evicted and replaced with, in this case, video fragments.


Expected results:

1. Preferably don't flush the entire disk cache.  Not sure what the exact solution might be.  The video fragments appear to be tagged correctly for caching, but clearly the behaviour is destructive.

This may be part of a larger project.  I have some indications that our caching is not working perfectly exactly in cases like these.

I'll leave this open as it has STR.
