Hi All,

When emitting a master playlist, BANDWIDTH field is computed in
libavformat/hlsenc.c by adding video and audio stream bitrates and then
adding 10% to account for container overhead. However HLS specification
(RFC8216) says that BANDWIDTH represents the peak segment bit rate.
AVERAGE-BANDWIDTH on the other hand represents the average segment bit
rate. If this is correct, I would like to send a patch to fix it.
