Need a Linux script/daemon that accepts multiple live streams and for each stream does the following...

[1] Save stream to disk hourly for 24 hours, in format "streamname-hh.mp4" (where "hh" is the hour the stream is recorded for, for ex. "23" for 11 pm)
[2] Every 24 hours start to overwrite the files
[3] In case live stream drops during the recording, record to new file with "-X" (where "X" is the number of current retry, for ex. "stream-23-3.mp4" if this is 3rd retry to save the stream). At end of hour merge these fragmented files into 1 file "stream-hh.flv".
[4] If live stream is inaccessible for 24 hours, stop trying the stream and wait for manual startup of that stream. Send e-mail notification.

[1] Run on on latest Ubuntu LTS
[2] Use ffmpeg/mencoder or any similar tool
[3] Ability to start/stop via command line
