Again, you didn't say so originally.

Sure, but then you obviously need the individual files. As far as I
know, ffmpeg's HLS mechanisms have no way of handling the segments
separately. So, you need to resort to youtube-dl again, and add the
option "--keep-fragments" (and possibly keep the other options I
mentioned). Then you can apply the given ffmpeg raw extaction command
on each individual segment.
