@sleduc, no I hadn't, reinstalled via yaourt and didn't have to rebuild the server database. Not sure if I understand rebuilding without reinstalling. Thanks

@WFV Have you tried to just rebuild mediatomb after you upgraded ffmpeg ?

WFV commented on 2018-05-12 23:44

had to reinstall it after -Syu today now that is 58, else fails on "can't find" error.

@J5lx: thanks

@oksijun I applied the patch now. It took me a long time because I forgot about it and I'm sorry about that.

@Everyone else: If this patch introduces any kind of bugs etc, let me know.

I'm by no means a C++ programmer either, but from what I understand it ignores the string size when reading a tag from a file. As explained in the bug report, this size is calculated incorrectly when the tag contains "special" characters.

Given that the last upstream update to mediatomb was in 2014, it's unlikely this patch will ever be improved or commented on. FWIW, however, I've been using it for a couple of years with no adverse effects.

Would you mind giving a short explanation of how that patch works? I'm not exactly a C++ programmer and I'm hesitant to add patches I don't understand…

@J5lx: would you consider adding this patch ? :

This fixes an issue described here :

Sorry but to be honest I adopted the package just to update it in order to test it, but never really used it...
I disowned it in case someone is interested in working on it.
