[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH] Ignore expired cookies

On some authenticated Neulion streams, they send a cookie from the past,
Set-Cookie: nlqptid=""; Domain=.neulion.com; Expires=Thu, 01-Jan-1970
00:00:10 GMT; Path=/
As a result, the good cookie value is overwritten and authentication breaks
immediately. I realise disqualifying a cookie over the date might open a
can of worms when it comes to date formatting used by different systems,
but I added Neulions wrong format and the http standard format.
Please let me know if this is acceptable. I've run it against fate and
there were no problems.

while the mark of the mature man is that he wants to live humbly for
one." --W. Stekel
