Comment (by beloko):

 However it's an excellent remark.

 Since Apple adopts the fMP4 segmentation, I suppose the FFMPEG common goal
 could be a global segmenter that can create DASH and HLS streams. Because
 theses two protocols share the same data stream content throught .m4s

 HLS segmenter already works pretty well with Adaptive Bitrate and multiple
 audio/subtitle tracks. It supports MPEG-TS container to keep the
 compatibility with old Apple and Android devices. It can create WebVTT
 segmented streams. So, perhaps it could be easier to include an .mpd
 generator in the current HLS encoder to make the main data stream content
 compliant with DASH protocol too.
