Bug in apple quicktime rtsp proxy for linux

Post by Bernino Lin » Wed, 24 Nov 1999 04:00:00


I have tried apples rtsp proxy and found the following bug in it - core
dump sig11. I saw a couple of posting regarding it, but no one seemed to
research in the problem...well here it is (see end of mail).

Does anyone know how to contact Apple formerly known as progressive
hardware suppliers ?

Or perhaps there is someone that can make a patch for me ?

Relevant data:

OS: RH 5.2 kernel 2.2.10 intel x86 family (586) - all software is RH
compiled, because it runs on a production server.

Kind regards

1. Apple RTSP/RTP Proxy

Hi NG,

is there anybody out there who've successfully setup the RTSP/RTP Proxy from
Apple ?

The Proxy from Apple can found here

If an Website openes a seperate Quicktime Player all works fine. If an
website use the Plugin and have a embedded quicktime player then the proxy
quits with "Segmentation Fault (core dumped)".

- Mandrake Linux 8.0, Kernel 2.4.7
- Internet Explorer 6, Quicktime 5.0

Any ideas ?
