Comment (by HoldenForever):


 I have the same problem. EXT-X-DISCONTINUITY tags are currently not
 supported by the current version of FFMPEG. VLC does not support this as
 well. Someone a long time ago did create a patch to try and make this work
 in 2013:


 I have tried to modify this to work on the latest version of FFMPEG by
 just setting the PTS and DTS to no value and it works sometimes however it
 is not the correct way and can cause some epic audio sync issues down the
 line. We need to make sure the timebase from demuxer to muxer is
 consistent and this patch attempts to do that while my patch fails.

 If I find a way to make this work I will submit it here as I have spent
 alot of time trying to solve this issue and I think when FFMPEG supports
 EXT-X-DISCONTINUITIES it will be alot better piece of software for my use
