 > yes , if you want to fix it, and you need me to fix it, i can sent a
 patch to you , but i cannot applied it into ffmpeg hlsenc now, because it
 maybe will make some new bugs, one of the bugs is the describe above.

 We could keep it as-is if we fix second part of it.

 Yeah, MUST not should. But not greater but **greater or equal to rounded
 value**.

 I.e. `round(max{chunk_duration}) <= target_duration`

 I have provided an example of logic that follows the specification.
