    33Now, the real issue resides in the #EXT-X-TARGETDURATION being written at the end of the file. 
     
    1212If the iOS device has no clue of the segment length it should expect, it will miserably fail to read said stream (at least on iOS 5.x)

    14 So, once again, your patch will work for known duration files, i.e.: I'm transcoding a file, because the client will find in the playlist, at the end, both the EXT-X-TARGETDURATION and mostly EXT-X-ENDFILE tags, so the iOS device and mobile safari will be happy and know where your steam starts, when it ends and in how many segments it should expect it.
