Sets the range.
Pass a text as parameter, which should contain the specified range you want. It should be in the format "X-Y", where X or Y may be left out. HTTP transfers also support several intervals, separated with commas as in "X-Y,N-M". Using this kind of multiple intervals will cause the HTTP server to send the response document in pieces (using standard MIME separation techniques). For RTSP, the formatting of a range should follow RFC 2326 Section 12.29. For RTSP, byte ranges are not permitted. Instead, ranges should be given in npt, utc, or smpte formats.

Pass an empty string to this option to disable the use of ranges.

Ranges work on HTTP, FTP, FILE (since 7.18.0), and RTSP (since 7.20.0) transfers only.
