In my opinion choosing first segment in playlist is the most reasonable option.
In previous version it was always choosen last but two segment (the
latest possible).
Protocol draft for HLS states that client can start from any segment
except last two
*/). So I think that is good to leave user the opportunity to select
which segment to start from. This will be just more accurate
implementation of HLS protocol.
