Send "Accept-Encoding: gzip" on .m3u8 HTTP requests

Some live streaming servres (such as Youtube live feeds) can generate multi-megabyte .m3u8 files when uncompressed and on long feeds. Accepting gzip'd playlist files can both save bandwidth and dramatically improve playback performance.
I've tested this by just using "Accept-Encoding: gzip" but I don't think that would be an acceptable solution.
