Issue - Ghost streaming files

Postby nickb » Mon Apr 11, 2011 3:32 pm

Hi Carlos.

Great job on the new Tech Preview. However....the following issue is still prevalent in this new version:

Viewing videos from the video folder work fine...BUT...after the video is closed, RP is writing a file by the same name with no file size, and when I try to delete them (manually thru Win Explorer), it says they are still in use by the RP service, and can't be played again until the RP service is stopped and the file created by RP is deleted.

In order to delete these "ghost" files, I have to reboot the machine or stop the RP Service and then delete them, and then restart RP Service.

My guess is that RP is not killing the stream and deleting the temp file for videos in the video folder after being played or closed.

Atrtached is a screen shot of what happens. Notice the two "Serenity" entries. The first is the actual movie, the one that has the generic icon is the one RP creates to stream, but does not delete if you stop the movie.

Hi Charlos, This is great set of features. Do you have some documentation on how to use it (in my case from windows phone 7 client)?
thanks,
