Hello,

Any idea why hlsvariant is not working?

livestreamer "hlsvariant://http://megahdlive1-f.akamaihd.net/i/live_1@105260/master.m3u8" best -l debug
[cli][info] Found matching plugin stream for URL hlsvariant://http://megahdlive1-f.akamaihd.net/i/live_1@105260/master.m3u8
[cli][info] Opening stream: 360p
[stream.hls][debug] Starting buffer filler thread
[stream.hls][debug] Reloading playlist
[stream.hls][debug] Buffer filler thread completed
[cli][error] Could not open stream: Unable to open URL: http://megahdlive1-f.akamaihd.net/i/live_1@105260/index_5001_av-b.m3u8?sd=10&rebase=on (404 Client Error: Not Found)

With VLC it works, here is the debug log http://pastebin.com/qufV1aJD Most probably we need to accept cookies right?

The playlist is containing multiple playlists with same bitrate/resolution but only the first one of each quality is not returning 404. The problem is that Livestreamer is always choosing the last playlist specified for each quality while VLC is using the first it finds. The spec doesn't seem to specifiy how this should be handled, so I guess we could change the behaviour to match VLC.
