hls: Add EXT-X-PROGRAM_DATE_TIME, playlist recovery (append-list) and omit-endlist

This merge adds the following features:

  • append-list boolean property to attempt a recovery of a playlist if one with the same name exists; a recovery is preceded with a EXT-X-DISCONTINUITY.
  • EXT-X-PROGRAM_DATE_TIME tag in the playlist, including after a discontinuity
  • omit-endlist boolean property to not write the EXT-X-ENDLIST tag (useful for live stream)

I've been working on these for a project that requires a good wall time synchronization from a stream of poor quality that can easily get interrupted (thus the recovery). I'm however very new to GStreamer so a review is much welcome!
