[FFmpeg-user] Buffering a live m3u8 playlist with ffmpeg

Hi, I want to re-stream a live m3u8 playlist and I don't have problem
with restreaming it with a delay.
My question is, can I implement it with ffmpeg ? is there
any way to cache the input stream in a temporary buffer/file, for some time
(seconds, perhaps minutes), and then replay it ?
A feature like network-caching in VLC ?
I saw in the ffmpeg documentation an option called cache:url, but
I don't know if I could apply it for that.
I'll appreciate your suggestions.
Regards, Ana
