#9950 closed Patch - Bug Fix (fixed)

[PATCH] DownloadManager SEGV after timeout

Reported by: Lawrence Rust <lvr@…> Owned by: cpinkham
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.25
Component: MythTV - General Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords: DownloadManager SEGV
Cc: Ticket locked: no


  1. Fix a SEGV that can occur if a download times out. If a caller makes a synchronous call then downloadNow will timeout after 10 seconds but downloadFinished, which is a slot, can be called after control has returned to the caller and the QByteArray data buffer has been deallocated.
  1. Allow the caller to set their own User-Agent header.
  1. Provide better error reporting.

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

Fix a potential segfault if MDM::downloadNow() times out.

Reset the destination QByteArray pointer after a download timeout to make sure the downloadFinished() callback doesn't try to write to it after it has been deallocated.

Closes #9950

I'm leaving part 2 of #9950 uncommitted for now since we do not need or use this functionality internally.

Part 2 is of interest for implementing MHEG InteractionChannel? i.e. BBC iPlayer functionality. The spec mandates that the client set the User-Agent to a specific form. That said, there are a number of other chages to do with cache querying that would be required too.

When you have the MHEG InterationChannel? patch ready, you can resubmit the User-Agent change to MythDownloadManager? with it and we can apply that functionality along with the code that uses it at the same time.
