I was thinking about case when VLC is used for streaming with option
"don't delete old segments" (--no-sout-livehttp-delsegs). In such
circumstances if process get crashed and restarted new segments will
be named again from index 1, overwriting all previous segments.

I check how to use change_string_list() and implement it into code.
Hopefully on  Tuesday.
