Make playlist.m3u8 contain segments instead of inner playlist

Today, the playlist.m3u8 points to a chunk.m3u8 playlist.

Is it possible to change that so the playlist.m3u8 will contain the segments directly and avoid the extra request?

just use chunk.m3u8 in your request url to archive this.
you need to enable http-origin to disable nimble session tracking if you want to use this schema for live content.

Hi Shahar,

Hello, I am a newbie of M3U8 filed so I am not sure I got your message, this one I think is useful: and actually, I think m3u8 is not good for devices so, if you like, I think converting m3u8 to mp4 is a good idea, this one is for you: good luck
