I'm trying to support the use of VLC with a web server (CL-HTTP) that
handles byte ranges.
Currently I have some trouble when I want to display a movie that
comes from that webserver.
The transport is going over HTTP 1.1.
VLC requests a byte range of 0- and for the next request of
Why doesn't it request byte ranges of 0-198511 and 198512-397023 ?
Why not ask the web server for a specific byte range like above?
How is VLC's current transfer method supposed to work? Is there a
description of what is implemented?
VLC requests bytes from 0 to the end of the data source, but then ends
the transfer some point (?) and requests a new range from some number
to the end?
Is that a good idea?
