That could work too and I thought about it, by having an external
process that links let's say 00017661.ts to 1333974896.ts but I am
more about the idea of having it implemented natively in VLC. And it
still doesn't solve the issue that I pointed out:

"If VLC crashes (which is likely to happen at some point) while it's
writing the .ts segments, it will loose track. Starting VLC again (or
autostart), will start overwriting the existing .ts segments, starting
from 00000001.ts."
