Video Playlist Issue

I am creating a playlist of several mp4 files. Something like the following:

CODE
var playlist = new KONtx.media.Playlist();

playlist.addEntry(new KONtx.media.PlaylistEntry( {
streams : [ {
'url' : 'http://10.74.192.186/Videos/1.mp4',
'bitrate' : '1000'
} ]
});

playlist.addEntry(new KONtx.media.PlaylistEntry( {
streams : [ {
'url' : 'http://10.74.192.186/Videos/2.mp4',
'bitrate' : '1000'
} ]
});

KONtx.mediaplayer.playlist.set(playlist);
KONtx.mediaplayer.playlist.start();


The first video plays fine, and I receive an EOF state change. In my web server logs, I see the next video in the playlist being requested, and it briefly displays on the TV, but then the Konfabulator engine appears to reset. The "Your Remote Will Be Unresponsive" dialog displays, and the snippet bar reloads.

I am using a Samsung 7000 series TV (http://www.samsung.com/us/video/tvs/UN40C7000WFXZA).

Yahoo! Widget Engine: 5.5.5
Widget Application Framework: 1.3.12.C
Launcher Bootstrap: 1.2.10
Widget Container: 1.2.68.C

In my web server logs I get:

QUOTE
// I receive the EOF for the previous video here
10.74.192.111 - - [17/Feb/2011:07:43:52 -0500] "GET /debug?output=EOF HTTP/1.1" 404 466 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Samsung; U; Linux; en) Konfabulator/5.5.5"

// Here is the request being made for the next video, but Konfabulator resets/crashes shortly after displaying the video for a brief second or two
10.74.192.111 - - [17/Feb/2011:07:43:52 -0500] "GET /Videos/2.mp4 HTTP/1.1" 206 10060704 "-" "Lavf52.34.0"

  • Do other videos also crash the tv? Do you have other tvs that you've tested on? Results?

    Could you put those videos on a public server so I could test using the same streams?

    The following patch seems to fix the issue: http://developer.yahoo.net/forum/?showtopi...okiecheckonly=1.
