#2500 closed patch (fixed)

UPnP fast-forward/rewind fails for specific hardware client

Reported by: troycauble@… Owned by: dblain

UPnP fast-forward/rewind fails for the AVeL LinkPlayer2 and probably other hardware players using Syabas firmware. Trial and error led to the discovery that the client fails when the Content-Range header is included.

A patch is attached.

In trunk, the

if ( sUserAgent.contains( "Syabas", false ) == 0 ) 

Totally disables any sort of skip-ahead or ff/rw ability (making the situation much worse, as the percentage skip-ahead used to work). The problem with ff/rw was the fact that the content-range header didn't have the 'bytes' word in front of the range. That was fixed in changeset 12427:

Please remove the UserAgent? check for Syabas as it was an invalid suggestion.

I removed the UserAgent? Syabas check in my patch submitted with ticket 3580, so this ticket can be reclosed.

(In [14250]) * Changed Device Name to start with hostname.

  • Had to disable MSRR Service except for XBox 360 & Windows Media Player (userAgent="Mozilla/4.0" so actually applies to more apps.)
  • Added temporary fix for ps3 seeking/unknown media msg. ( Fixes #3776 )
  • Fixed Music CDS - Albums would always be empty.
  • Had to disable "Recently Added" category from Music CDS until fix can be made.
  • Fast Forwarding works correctly in DSM-520... not sure when this was fixed. ( Fixes #3344, #2500 )
