I don't really understand your mail, but there is indeed a problem
with this playlist. My iPhone plays it well, but with VLC 1.2 git, I
get :

vlc: httplive.c :1379 : hls_Download:  assertion "segment->size > 0" failed

I will try to investigate this, unless somone else (like J.P. Saman
:-) ) wants to do it.
