vlc stops sending in 10.10 beta release

Asked by jfischer on 2010-10-04

I am attempting to stream media using either UDP or RTP using VLC in UBUNTU 10.10 beta release. After approx 10 seconds the stream stops. I watch the stream in tcpdump and packets stop being sent.. This works correctly on the Windows VLC version.and when VLC is run in a VM environment. System is a Dell E6410 with Wifi card Intel WiFi LInk 6200. VLC is 1.1.4

When streaming is stopped, it appears the transmit buffer is released and roughly 350 packets are sent on the network.

Any suggestions on how to resolve this?

Thanks for the help Marco, i've been updating regularly already. Filed the bug as #654598 and I suspect it has something to do with the network interface drivers.

Can you help with this problem?
