Comment (by takis):

 The above description was incorrect: The timestamp is indeed being
 rescaled, but the demuxer assumes that the first segment will start from
 0. But, for actual live streaming of HTTP Live Streams, only the last x
 encoded segments are stored, the earlier segments get deleted. Because of
 this (and for other reasons), the initial segment fetched after parsing
 the m3u8 will not start from 0.
