A dynamic time progress bar for playing still growing video files would be great.

I use a share in my local network to recorded live TV broadcasts to a TS video file.
Using Infuse to view such videos files that are still recording, the time progress bar is not updated and Infuse stops playing when the bar end is reached, even if the video is longer in the meantime.
Example:
I record a TV show of 60 minutes.
10 minutes after the record has started I begin to play the file in Infuse.
Reaching 10 minutes, Infuse stops playing the video, even if in the meantime the video has a length of 20 minutes.
I must close the file and restart playing it to continue viewing. This is especially annoying if this has to be done several times for a video file.

Want that also please.

-- mod merge from https://firecore.com/forum/topic/24399 --

I am able to successfully watch in Infuse Pro on my ATV 4K the .ts files which are currently still recording by my satellite receiver Vu+ Uno 4K.

So I am already happy.

But to make it perfect following would be great:
Currently I can only watch until for example minute 10 if the recording was only 10 minutes long when I started to watch it in Infuse. So when I watched the first 10 minutes Infuse thinks that now the file ends, but in real it is already 20 minutes long. When I do reopen the file, then I am able to watch until around minute 20, but then I would have to reopen and reopen again... Not really a comfortable timeshifting.

Would it be possible that Infuse will check file size change or file length change during playback and automatically expand possible playback until real end of file during playback?
Maybe it would be enough if Infuse would check that every 30 or 60 seconds? Then a very comfortable "timeshift" would be possible.

Other players do not stop the playback in such cases and do play until the real end of file. Can you implement this also please?
