Apart from what Moritz already wrote, please understand that
above command line does not concatenate your input videos
but creates a new output file with the constraint that
FFmpeg's ts muxer has known bugs;-(

You may want to download the parts of the hls stream and
concatenate them with "cat".
(Is there really no script that does this?)
If the input is not hls but a transport stream, use wget or curl.
