[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH] Progressive HLS support. When switched on 2 HLS streams will be generated: full + audio only. Also will be generated root m3u8 file for both streams. That functionality tested on spreeacst.com platform within last few mounths and work well on iOS devices and desktop safari.

Could you explain the reason of using separate HLS encoder? It just repeats
part of segment's functionality (and even not all necessary). Moving this
patch there requires lot of unrelated changes there just for make basic HLS
functionality working there.
