            Bug ID: 744689
           Summary: hlssink: EXT-X-VERSION set to 6 while not using any
                    features > 3
    Classification: Platform
           Product: GStreamer
           Version: unspecified
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: minor
          Priority: Normal
         Component: gst-plugins-bad
          Assignee: gstreamer-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org
          Reporter: guillaume at segu.in
        QA Contact: gstreamer-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org
     GNOME version: ---

The EXT-X-VERSION set in the playlists produced by hlssink is hardcoded to 6
[1], while as far as I can tell no feature for versions greater than 3 are in
use [2,3].

VLC 2.1 only seems to support HLS up to version 3, and as per the spec [2]
refuses to process playlists from an unsupported version, while it seems it
supports all the features used by hlssink.

Would it be possible to reduce the version to 3, at least until features from
the newer versions are used ?

Thanks for the great piece of software !
