Description Nicolas Dufresne (ndufresne) 2016-06-10 12:07:39 UTC
Through bug #767424 we found that a valid looking date time won't parse.

   "Thu May 11 15:57:46 2006 "
Comment 1 Tim-Philipp Müller 2016-06-10 12:22:52 UTC
GstDateTime does not parse this kind of string, and the parsing is actually done in flvdemux in parse_flv_demux_parse_date_string(), so moving back there.
Comment 2 Nicolas Dufresne (ndufresne) 2016-06-10 12:28:41 UTC
Oops, good point.
Comment 3 Tim-Philipp Müller 2016-06-10 12:36:31 UTC
I'll have a look.
