 I've been unable to playback any of the livestreams from the backend using
 VLC. It appears that the m3u8 file is has incorrect filenames (contains a
 directory). VLC is attempting to playback a path with two Content
 directories because of this

 Testing a sample file from Apple (
 http://devimages.apple.com/iphone/samples/bipbop/gear1/prog_index.m3u8 )
 works in VLC. If I take one of the .ts links and construct it with a
 single /Content (rather than /Content/Content) I am able to playback the
 file in VLC, indicating that it isn't a codec issue. Comparing the two
 m3u8 files (the apple sample and the one from the backend), the one the
 backend produces contains a directory in the filename

 Talking with sphery, it appears that either the full path should be in the
 m3u8 file (including http://server:port/) or it should be the filename
 only (no directory).
