  • [Accidental commit]
  • Using HTTP API to fetch date/time configuration values causes extra newline in timezone.
  • h264: Read interleaved RTP-over-TCP data received from client (and discard it for now).
  • h264-server: Fix RTP over TCP. Create session ID during DESCRIBE request instead of SETUP request. Fix CRLF problems in SDP response. Send correct packet size over interleaved TCP.
  • h264.cgi: Add "sei" option to control whether or not SEI (motion) packets are sent in the H.264 video stream.
  • h264-server: Use "list_for_each_entry_safe" instead of "list_for_each_safe".
  • h264-server: Add HTTP multipart support.
  • h264-server: Add missing "#include <signal.h>".

  • h264-server: Ignore SIGPIPE.
  • h264-server: Add global buffers for RTSP/HTTP "response" and SDP.
  • h264-server: Clean up HTTP request handling, and add support for HTTP OPTIONS request.

  • h264-server: Remove unused "strndup()" function.
  • h264-server: Add return value to "connection.send_data" function, and use it to conditionally call "stream_client_del()" when a connection has closed due to write() error. Also, check that the specific connection is on our list before deleting it in "stream_client_del()".
  • h264-server: Simplify RTSP/HTTP request processing and remove "string_list" related code.
  • h264-server: Simplify HTTP request line processing and remove "string_split()" function.
  • h264-server: Listen on port 8080 in addition to 554 and 8554 (for debugging, to force Wireshark to interpret stream as HTTP).
  • h264-server: Add support for "HTTP over RTSP".
  • h264-server: Add support for "interleaved TCP" streams.
  • h264-server: Add source files for generating the MD5 hash which is used for session ID creation.
  • h264-server: Create a pseudo-random session ID during "SETUP" request instead of using a fixed session ID.
  • h264-server: Remove per-request sequence number from "struct connection".
  • h264-server: Clean up options handling, remove unused code, etc.
  • h264-server: Add "bad_request()" function.
  • h264-server: Fix issue when calling io_service_add() on an io_object that is already in a service's io_object list. We need to move the entry to the front of the list instead of adding a new copy (which breaks the linked list chain).
  • h264-server: More "io_service" debugging messages.
  • h264-server: Move global "control" io_object to "struct stream".
  • h264-server: Move check for IO_FLAG_DELETE before validating various io_object values if DEBUG_IO_VALIDATE is enabled.
  • h264-server: Use setproctitle to update server status via command-line (as visible to "ps", etc.).
  • h264-server: INIT_LIST_HEAD is not required for child list entries; mark io_service_add() and io_service_remove() as non-external functions.
  • Rework io_object creation and deletion, so we can avoid deleting an io_object that is still on the io_service's list of pending objects.
  • Add compile-time option (CONFIG_USER_BUSYBOX_SYSLOGD_DUP) to suppress duplicate syslog messages. Enable CONFIG_USER_BUSYBOX_SYSLOGD_DUP in default builds for all StarDot products.
  • h264-server: Declare various message buffers as "static" to prevent potential stack overflows when processing RTSP requests.
