[AirPlay][Warning] Don't update to iOS8 if you want AirPlay
(2014-10-02, 23:57)Memphiz Wrote: I have tested that flag for a short time @DBMandrake - it looks not so bad really. But when streaming a video from the camera roll i still have the problem now that it only sends an url in ipv6 form like http://[stupid:ip:v6:address]:7001/1/crypticfilename.mov ... problem is that XBMC can't play those urls and its not so straight forward to make them play.
So you're saying video from the camera roll doesn't work at all for you now ?

I'm not seeing IPv6 URL's from the photos apps, but then I haven't had IPv6 enabled on my PC or Mac...do you ?

I just tried enabling IPv6 on the windows PC, it definitely has an IPv6 address in addition to it's IPv4 address but requests for video from the photos app still look like this:

15:11:48 T:7160   DEBUG: CCurlFile::GetMimeType -|User-Agent=AppleCoreMedia%2f1.0.0.8F455%20(AppleTV%3b%20U%3b%20CPU%20OS%204_3%20like%20Mac%20OS%20X%3b%20de_de) -> application/octet-stream

I'm not sure how to tell whether the iPad also has an IPv6 address - it doesn't show one under wifi properties...

As a hack if a connection can't be made to the IPv6 address can you just find the IP address that the original airplay request came from and substitute that as a fall back ?

Would that also be a workaround for the cases where a hostname is provided but can't be resolved due to dns issues ? (something that showed up in the iOS 7 thread a number of times)

I still haven't worked out why some iOS devices are providing a hostname to connect to for airplay requests (ipad.local etc) and some just an IP address.... mine always provides just an IP address on both work and home networks...
