[vlc-devel] Bug in HTTP access module

We supposed that the 206 Partial Content answer authorize the server to
send just a part of a file. But in reading the particular case of Range
in the official specification RFC 2616, we saw that the server should
return the whole file when no last_byte_pos is given (like VLC does). If
someone is interested by reading the RFC 2616 about this case you can
find it at this adress:
http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2616#section-14.35 . 

So we will work in fixing our server bug. Thank you for your help to
find the reason of our problem.
