Segment configurability

Encoders should be capable of configuring the number of segments per playlist, the number of segments per folder, and the duration of each segment. While not required, this level of flexibility is helpful for situations that require changing these attributes.

Encoders that cannot configure these attributes will not be flexible enough to satisfy specific requirements of certain situations. Common reasons to change the duration are to lower the amount of hand-wave latency or lower the number of segment files being created for caching or hardware performance reasons.
