Here is the command I use which works with my iPad 3rd Gen. I cd into
the directory that I want the files to load from on the server. My
case is "/var/www/localhost/htdocs/stream/" which is
"http://domain/stream/". You probably should lose all the extra
options. for realtime encoding add "-re" to the command. You will want
to change RESOLUTION BITRATE & VIDSOURCE to what you need. Also below
is an example html file.
This is with ffmpeg git from a week ago. notice the "-hls*" options
instead of -segment.* options.

ffmpeg  -i VIDSOURCE -y  -c:v libx264 -b:v BITRATE -vprofile baseline
-preset medium -x264opts level=41 -threads 4 -s RESOLUTION -map 0:v
-map 0:a:0  -c:a libfaac -b:a 160000 -ac 2   -hls_time 10
-hls_list_size 6 -hls_wrap 18 -start_number 1 stream.m3u8

   <video  height="531"  width="945" autoplay="autoplay" controls="controls">
    <source src="stream.m3u8" />

Hope this is helpful.
