[vlc-devel] DASH bug

Traced the bug down to HTTPConnection::read and vlc stream_read. Seems that stream_read segfaults after sometime. Just want to mention that maybe I use this function (stream_read) not properly or there is a bug. Anyway I will submit a patch from my local stack with a buffer and byterange requests where this segfault does not occur due to the fact that I use net_read instead of stream_read. I hope that I have enough time until Sunday to prepare the patches.
