It is important to mention the website with the embedded stream.
But also the stream itself for direct use.   
url:m3u8=*
Sometimes multiple different extension streams are available for different kind off devices.
Such as radio stations with a webcam stream.
Live streams.
Image streams with from time to time a update.

What's wrong with just url=*? To quote the url=* wiki page, "it is advised not to use this tag when more specific alternatives are available." Like website=*, it doesn't specify that it's a camera feed, so it might be used for other purposes. And in fact I happened to see a couple of nodes using url=* for picture *of* the camera, rather than pictures taken by the camera.
