I confess that I don't like this solution, since it spams the output
and the solution is underkill since log is not the proper place where
to signal events. (log is not a proper IPC mechanism - a proper
solution could be to implement a signalling/event system in
muxers/demuxer to signal special events)

I suggest to do this: simply add a verbose log in segment_end, this
way you don't need to spam the log but you still manage to achieve
your objective (by increasing the log level).

Please send the updated patch here.
