Gnash's year-month-day stuff probably only works for the POSIX time range Dec 13 20:45:52 1901 to Jan 19 03:14:07 2038 whereas the commercial player handles from thousands of years BC to thousands of years AD.

Gnash uses the POSIX timezone database to determine timezone offset from UTC around the world and when Daylight Saving Time is/was in effect. The commercial player has its own internal set of rules that gets some of the dates on which DST changes wrong by days and weeks.
