(mod_flv_streaming is becoming obsolete as Flash is replaced by
HTML5 and most modern clients support HTTP/1.1 Range requests)

  • Target version deleted (1.5.0)

#4 Updated by gstrauss 8 months ago

  • Status changed from New to Need Feedback
  • Priority changed from Normal to Low

Is the feature still desirable? many clients which stream video have learned how to send HTTP/1.1 Range requests.

  • Status changed from Need Feedback to Patch Pending
  • Target version set to 1.4.46

trivial to implement. Do note that Flash and flv are being obsoleted by HTML5, and clients today typically support HTTP/1.1 Range requests.

#6 Updated by gstrauss 8 months ago

It should be noted that the patch for the "header" param (to read header from the file) has not been included in 1.4.46.

If there is still a desire and use case, please add a note to this ticket with further details. And to repeat:

Do note that Flash and flv are being obsoleted by HTML5, and clients today typically support HTTP/1.1 Range requests.
