Services API: LiveStream does not map to Recording or Video

In order to make the linkage in MythTV Player, I have to inspect the source file filename against what is contained in the recorded program or video data.

The livestream API will probably be re-written. I agree that in it's present form it's clumsy, and it violates REST principles. What we'd ultimately like to have is an on-demand transcode where you request the recording or video by it's ID and get back the playlist. Each 'chunk' in the playlist would then be transcoded as near to real-time as possible and only in response to demand, eliminating the need to explicitly start/stop the transcoding process.
