When I do that, a few messages are printed but otherwise everything
works perfectly and the output appears correctly timed when written to

How do we get similar performance from HLS input? I think hls.c just
calls av_probe_input_buffer to open the sub-demuxers (this is my first
time trying to read this code, so please correct me), so I'm not sure
why the MPEG-TS demuxer wouldn't handle timestamps the same way in
both situations.

for reference, new command was:

    cat `grep '.ts$' discont_test.m3u8` | ffmpeg -f mpegts -i - -c
copy output000.mp4
