Description
The filename prefix is currently (by default) the filename of the input source - it's pretty ugly really.
foo.avi.m3u8
foo.avi_00001.ts


Need to add an option to allow the filename prefix to be specified if preferred, e.g.
./HLS-Stream-Creator.sh -i foo.avi -s 10 -p foo
foo.m3u8
foo_00001.ts

Thinking about it some more, I'd like to add this as two options, one for segment titles and one for the playlist
./HLS-Stream-Creator.sh -i foo.avi -s 10 -p foo-bar -t bar
foo-bar.m3u8
bar_00001.ts

That way, downstream systems that require a specific filename for the manifest can be satisfied whilst not necessarily being tied to having the same name for the segments themselves.

Have added two new options
-p [name]     Playlist filename prefix
-t [name]     Segment filename prefix (title)

If the playlist name isn't specified it takes it from the inputfile. If the segment name isn't specified, it's taken from the playlist name (so may also come from the inputfilename).
In a wrapper script, the values can be set in
PLAYLIST_PREFIX='foo'
SEGMENT_PREFIX='bar'

Will update the README shortly
btasker changed status from 'Open' to 'Resolved'
