HLS streaming - :http-referrer is not propagated to chunk requests
This is VLC 3.0.8 Issue also present in nightly vlc-4.0.0-dev-win64-ca3b0ed9 from 20-Apr-2020 04:43
Some streams are referrer locked so you add :http-referrer option. Referrer header is set to requests for the master playlist and also to requests for chunklists.
Unfortunately it's not set on requests for the actual audio chunks, so I'm getting 403 when downloading stream's aac fragments.
Options: :network-caching=1000 :http-referrer=https://www.laxmasmusica.com/

Of course you would't even get to get playlist.m3u8 nor chunklist_b48000.m3u8 when :http-referrer=https://www.laxmasmusica.com/ is not used.
