Testpage for reproduction + fake livestream

When playing an HLS livestream with fMP4 segments using native browser playback (i.e. setiing the HLS playlist as `src` of a HTML `video` element), one would expect the livestream to start playing back on the live edge (the right edge) and display the most recent video content.

This worked fine up until Safari 16.3, but in Safari 16.5 playback starts at the end of the DVR window (the left edge). Couldn’t test it with Safari 16.4, so maybe it’s already broken there.

Interestingly, the issue does not occur when the HLS stream contains MPEG-TS segments instead of fMP4.

I have attached a test-page as well as a “fake livestream” to reproduce the issue, but any HLS livestream with fMP4 segments should surface the described issue.
