#10468 closed enhancement (obsolete)

busybox/httpd enhancement

Reported by: m.storchak@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: busybox httpd streaming seek Cc:


I tried to use busybox httpd to stream video files from my router running OpenWRT, and it appeared that the way httpd responds to VLC makes VLC assume that httpd doesn't understand Range: header.
I propose to add the following patch (tested with r29264, works for me). It allows to seek on seekable files like mkv and at least jump to approximate location for others (e.g. avi). It doesn't break compatibility with other http clients (tested on wget@MacOSX)
