With TAR output is set to OFF, and should see .m3u8 pointers and .ts segment files populate your output directory. The trick is correctly formatting the output filepath. You have to make sure your output filepath has a filename WITHOUT a 3-character file extension. I had this same problem because I either defined only the output directory, or had an output filename with .m3u on it. In both cases that will force a TAR output even if you have set it to off. SAMPLES: To get your segments, a correct output filepath should look something like this: http://yourbucket.s3.amazonaws.com/iphonetest/outputfilename ftp://username:email@example.com/iphonetest/outputfilename
