Patch for partial-content response bug

Postby WorldOfHurt » Thu Aug 19, 2010 10:02 pm

I posted this patch to fix a problem with the Sony BDP-S370 blu-ray player, but I guess it solves a problem that could be present in other renderers, so I'll cross-post it here so that other people can benefit.

The bug occurs because some renderers expect to receive the media stream via multiple partial-content responses. PMS handles the partial responses correctly, but unfortunately it reports the content length of the response "chunks" incorrectly which causes some renderers to declare the media corrupt.

I posted the patch on the PMS bug tracker on google code under issue #822.

The patch is also available directly here.

Thanks a lot!

I got the s370 a couple of days ago. Tested out the PS3MS yesterday and nothing worked for DLNA. Found your post about the patch, and applied it - and ... GREAT!

I had to apply the patch manually. I don't know why, but the patch command complained.

Thanks again.
