From what I can see, it seems to make things more complicated, and add a gap of time where nothing is downloading until the merge finishes (if you have max downloads at a time at 1 because of slow net). And when the merging is going on it's very intensive.
In case we're talking about the *multiple* playlist support, that one exists since LONG time and not every twitch stream has them. As explained above, it may happen if the streamer changes settings /restart streams/ reconnects....

I'm sorry but without that support, you cannot download those streams.
