In #3116, a time-limited ticket to avoid extra authentication has been implemented. However the ticket is valid only for few minutes, what is very uncomfortable when fetching whole playlist and switching between channels. After a while of watching TV it again asks for credentials.

Please implement the ability to set the ticket expiration (globally or per account), so that it will be possible to generate a ticket that is valid for a longer time period (lets say max 24h).

We should also allow a ticket management to give away tokens "forever". For example if I want to give an IP TV Receiver access, I would need a token that's valid until it's revoked (in case it gets stolen). If I just want to allow a friend to see a TV Show I would need a token limited to one channel for a limited time.

Added on latest versions; modificable ticket expiration + persistent auth codes.

 .intextra = INTEXTRA_RANGE(1, 0x7ff, 1),

Since it is in seconds, shouldn't the max be higher? Also maybe better to set the range in minutes instead of seconds - do people really need to have tickets expire in less than 1 min?

(I guess you copied from "cookie expiration", but that range is in days...)
