This is much more readable... human browsable.
It is sufficient if the lenght of a HLS chunck is know in advance and
not too short (1s or less might introduce problem).
By listing all the required files, it is rather easy to make a VOD
version with is a portion of the initial live streaming.
You may want to consider the start and stop time.
I work with system that encode filename as:
The first HHMMSSFF is for the start time and second HHMMSSFF is for
the end time.
This might be very important because HLS chunck might not be 1 second in lenght.
"FF" is for Frame number (from 00 to 24 AFAIR) because this is the
kind of precision you may want have.
