 Replying to [comment:10 saste]:
 > Two questions: should the old behavior be retained according to you? How
 can the new behavior be enabled, if it has to convive with the old one?

 No, no need to keep it. The old (current) behavior seems to be useless. It
 should be completely replaced by a sliding window behavior.
 The window size should be defined by -segment_list_size (default 5?).

 Two other things: It would be a nice feature if the m3u8 output could be
 redirected to STDOUT by using "-" as filename (like other ffmpeg
 input/output) for further processing (ftp upload etc.). And also a delete
 option would be usefull where ffmpeg deletes the last file fallen out of
 the sliding window.
