BTN2GO

I am looking at building an application for BTN2GO. Though it's a Flash application, I have analyzed the HTTP requests/responses, and it appears that sequentially-named files are served up over HTTP:

http://bigten247.cdnak.bigtenhd.neulion ... 5/2714.mp4
http://bigten247.cdnak.bigtenhd.neulion ... 5/2716.mp4
http://bigten247.cdnak.bigtenhd.neulion ... 5/2718.mp4

I'm certain I can write the authentication handshake to get the HTTP cookies set up as needed, but how would I go about stitching together those .mp4s to create the impression of a live stream?

Doing that will cause buffering between each clip. You may be able to create a fake m3u8 in the tmp: location that lists the MP4s as though they were HLS and point the video player at that, but I'm not sure if that would work or not.
