Yes I do, but I thought that getting hold of source m3u8 strings to be *used*
with ffmpeg would sort of qualify for this list...
I have tried other linix oriented lists like Ubuntu users but got no replies.

Most of my site handlers work fine but there the sites keep the m3u8 static.
There are a few which regularly change m3u8 and where I have not found a way to
dig out the m3u8 url when it does change...

I am not clever enough concerning analyzing network traffic so that is why I ask

I AM much appreciating your help!

I just wish I also understood the networking stuff behind so I did not have to
ask repeatedly.

Concerning the changing sites I have added a job to refresh the URL:s 5 minutes
before the downloads start and this is where I would like to add the new site
But it will not help if the changing time is in the middle of a download of
course. It seems like the changes are done more on a daily basis than very 30
minutes or so, though, so an update job might help.
