Unique session ID

You can use either a unique segment number or a unique session ID.

The encoder must not introduce any other changing parameters such as frequently changing time stamps in the URL path. For example, if the URL path format was: eventname/sessionID/bitrateID/post-timestamp_sequence#.ts

Introducing the post-timestamp parameter creates another set of directories for each .ts file — a condition that would cause excess directories and possible timeouts over long periods of time.

Ideally, the path would appear as follows: eventname/sessionID/bitrateID/somename-starttime-sequence#.ts

In this case, only the sequence# changes, which is the desired behavior.
