 '''Summary of the bug:'''
 recording in DASH format (HLS) outputs m3u8 where EXT-X-PROGRAM-DATE-TIME
 is always floored to seconds while millisecond digits are available in the

 '''How to reproduce:'''
 ffmpeg -f v4l2 -framerate 25 -video_size 720x480 -standard pal -i
 /dev/video0 -vcodec libx264 -r 25 -preset medium -keyint_min 250 -g 250 -f
 hls -hls_flags +program_date_time -hls_segment_type fmp4
 -hls_fmp4_init_filename now.mp4 -use_localtime 1 -hls_list_size 0
 -hls_time 60 -hls_segment_filename %Y-%m-%d_%H-%M-%S.m4s
 ffmpeg version latest
 built on ubuntu 18.04


 if (hls->flags & HLS_PROGRAM_DATE_TIME) {
     time_t now0;
     vs->initial_prog_date_time = now0;
 time_t is integer and therefore one cannot get millisecond resolution.
 This causes up to 1s error.
