I will try to run them using ffplay if possible, see below.

Segmented streams can be considered either as

small chunk of uniform bitstream that should be feed to the demuxer 
concatenated (e.g the mpegts case, applehttp protocol in libav) or
as items in a playlist thus to be considered as unrelated files that 
should be demuxed and decoded independently and whose content has to be 
presented as a continuous stream (thus segment1:frame124 is followed as 
segment2:frame0 as if it were the segment1:frame125)

Looks like the mp4 segmentation falls in this second case.

Could you please also paste the instructions on how to try that?

I hope we can clarify the issue soon =)
