HLS segmentation

Two ways to do this: server pull or video source push
Push: server runs nginx-rtmp-module, video comes in through RTMP
Pro: all video source devices can stay behind NAT in case no control on router.
Pull: server runs ffmpeg to pull video directly from cameras through RTSP.
Pro: no server needed on video source site, since server directly talks to cameras.
ffmpeg is far more feature rich than nginx-rtmp-module
rtmp-module doesn’t even have the option to organize segment into sub folders
(think hundrdeds of thousands of .ts files).

Extra credits to ffmpeg:
Some software stays stable by keeping the feature set small.
However, not only does Ffmpeg stays stable, but it has so many features and does every single one so well.
