OK, I'll remove date_*() calls and make a new patch.

I haven't studied VLC source code, so I'm lack of some architecture
knowledge of some plugins.
I think I can refine my patch and give a quick fix on this obvious bug.

I implemented my own RTSP server, and I use VLC as the standard client
player to test my RTSP server.
So, I don't use live555 library.
