So those chuncks, in general, have to be in different files.
Any website that supports range requests can handle non-chunked files.  A requirement that a new adaptive streaming model work on *any* website is excessive.

Requiring clients to maintain multiple decode pipelines, splice video, and crossfade audio, is excessive and unnecessary complexity that few devices will be able to support.
