#9552 new defect

Dropping query parameters of url in live m3u8

Reported by: Amin Vakil Owned by:
Priority: important Component: undetermined
Version: 4.4.1 Keywords: m3u8 streaming
Cc: Amin Vakil Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no

Description

Summary of the bug:
I have a m3u8 which includes (verified by curl)

...
stream-1019.ts?foo=bar
...

and server denies if the query parameter has not been set or set incorrectly. Currently ffprobe does not append query parameters retrieved from m3u8 to ts (and key) files and therefore stream cannot be viewed.
How to reproduce:

ffprobe -v debug -i "https://example.org/stream.m3u8?foo=bar"

Please note I don't have this problem on static m3u8 files for static movies. (It appends query parameters correctly)

I've just verified the live m3u8 works on MXPlayer Android.
