 I'm trying to play a stream like the following:

 The resulting m3u8 file looks like this:

 The problem is that ffmpeg doesn't stay on the complete url but instead
 downloads the file and than generates the new chunks like:

 Obviously this won't work. So I want to request a command line arg like '
 --webproxy' which would include the full original url like this:

 VLC can handle this type of urls already without problems but my software
 uses ffmpeg.

 (I used the latest build ffmpeg version N-79173-gbe746ae for testing and
 also older versions)

 Thanks in advance!
