HLS Multi Audio Track switch delay


We use Multi Audio tracks with HLS during our live events

Problem is that it can take 30 seconds to switch from one track to another which is way too long

Is there any way to reduce that ? On an iphone 8.3 it's switching instantly

I just tested our demo at
I’m seeing a buffer of a few seconds, but nothing like what you’re describing. Does the initial HLS stream take a long time to load as well? I’m guessing this delay is more of a function of your network bandwidth than our software.
