Lightbulb M3U and M3U8 general support

m3u and m3u8 playlists are commonly used in online media streaming that store media in fragments that requires a browser to decrypt fragments to view them.

What i'm talking about is general m3u parser that parse any m3u/m3u8 files into a media file.

Why?: Because some media hosters are not supported as a plugin in jdownloader, so with a m3u8 file we can download media from any hoster.

Suggested steps for the plugin:

1. Download fragments:
**External links are only visible to Support Staff**

2. Decrypt fragments using the key file and iv provided in the m3u8 file:

3. Combine fragments into one file:
"fragment0.ts"+"fragment1.ts"+"fragment3.ts" --> movie.mp4

So, input would be something like: **External links are only visible to Support Staff****External links are only visible to Support Staff**
Output shall be: something.mp4

**This is already implemented in some hoster plugins so it won't be difficult, but i think a plugin for general m3u8 files would be useful if the hoster is not supported.

we already have generic support for .m3u8. And m3u are just playlists which we don't support other than you can download them (But they wont be parsed/processed)

because of legal concerns, we can only support non crypted streams, eg: "METHOD=AES-128" = no go!

Don't fight the system, use it to your advantage. :]
