[vlc-devel] VLC stops to stream a wav file in the middle of the processing

Good afternoon,
  I must stream an audio file from a PC to an embedded system. On the PC I use VLC (unicast, UDP and RTP are used) and on my embedded system a load, say X, that I wrote. Currently, the RTP processing is implemented in X but not RTCP processing. I dont need RTCP because of the private network I use.

  Currently I try to stream a wav file of size 44 kBytes. VLC only stream the first 37 kBytes. It stops to stream when it sends the RTCP report to X. X does not send RTCP report of any kind. I see that because I use Wireshark to sniff the communication between the 2 systems.

  I use the GUI of VLC. I select File->Stream, then the destination "RTP Audio/Video profile" and port 5004, no transcoding.

  Do you know why VLC does not stream the whole wav file? The wav contains PCM, 8 bits/sample, 11025 samples/s, 1 channel. The part that is not streamed contains sounds (so it is not silent).

Thank you
