Actually, "#EXT-X-ENDLIST" is not added because you have specified 
"-segment_list_flags +live" in your ffmpeg command.
If you want to generate a live HLS stream, use +live flag and the tag 
will not be added (like in your example), if you want to generate a VOD 
stream, remove the flag and the tag will be added.

However this won't fix the issue you are reporting that "out005.ts" 
isn't added to the playlist and I can't help you with that, sorry.
Just wondering: are you sure that out005.ts contains useful data?
