I tried to reproduce this with testsrc, otherwise using the similar
(video!) properties and arguments as you, and I don't see any issues.
Perhaps you can try with testsrc as well?

testsrc input and even in my case giving local file as input is working well at my end. I am facing this issue when i am receiving stream from network.
In my Scenario I am sending UDP stream from machine 1 using VLC and receivng this UDP stream  on machine 2 by ffmpeg command. Playlist.m3u8 file  skips last segment entry.
Last segment out005.ts is vailable on my machine and it is having valid data also ,Please let me know why playlist.m3u8 is skipping last segment entry while receiving UDP stream?
