Bug Description

The source code of the RTMP module contains a hard-coded directory permission for newly created directories within the HLS fragment generation set to `0744` which makes no sense for directories as the executable bit is missing.

As we need to access the files from more than one user the directory should not only be readable but also be accessible (`0755`) for other users.

Sadly the upstream project seems inactive (~700 issues, 65 PRs, no changes for ~6M) so I'm asking to include a patch for this into the Ubuntu modifications (patches) of the package.

The required change is attached as a patch file.

Edit: Related upstream pull-request:

Marking as "In Progress" as this is now on my radar to review the patch and determine whether this is able to be included in a 'safe' way.
