I am using really long HLS streams (3 days) to present the files I saved in my recorder.
I faced two issues with that:

* The length computation was not precise, despite I set quite precise values in EXTINF (like `#EXTINF:15.000278`)
* I was not able to seek after 26.5hours after the beginning of the record sequence (bug https://trac.videolan.org/vlc/ticket/21863). This appears to be fixed in VLC 4.

This patchset fixes those issues in the vlc-3 branch.
Disclaimer : I did not test with MPEG-DASH but only with my HLS streams. Maybe I'm missing something.

  hls: Increased the precision of the time scale
  adaptive: Always set timestamps_offset on start
