You may need to save the Manifest list of segment sizes for later use.
Not sure if that may be considered a playlist in the ffmpeg way of thinking.
The Manifest XML file holds some very important information for codes too.
Please, check my (very long) explanation in the last email. It may help
understanding the possible playlist requirement.

Sure it does. It may be necessary to use an external MXL parser.
That's probably the easiest part.

That looks promissing.
Is code-shop source code available in the same license from FFMpeg?
I not sure, but code-shop solution seems to be focused in the server side of
Smooth Streaming, am I wrong?

Thanks very much.
