Ghost wtv 'Files' left behind after streaming

Hi Carlos,

I still have this issue persisting:

I'm posting the link back to where I asked about this since I no longer have the screen shot available.

Thanks!

The reason this is happening is because you probably had clicked one of the buttons for next or previous listings before clicking the programme listing.

I recommend using an app for your phone rather than using the html pages.
There are apps available for iPhones, android and windows mobile 7.
If not, you should use the dropdown menus for selecting time.

I'm not experiencing this on a phone. This is happening when using RP via a laptop.

Thanks Nick, in theory Remote Potato should automatically clean these files up after a small while but for some reason this isn't happening - I'll look into this,

Carlos, just so you know, this is not limited to WTV files that are created by Windows MC. (In fact, I don't believe I've had this problem with Recorded TV) This is happening when movie/video files (mpg..etc) are streamed. RP creates a WMV file on the fly to stream, but when ended or stopped, the WMV file isn't flushed, and that's where the error lies.

Yes, my findings too - it's to do with an error in a 3rd party DirectShow filter (not sure which one) that is causing the streaming thread to crash on the server when it ends, and it doesn't clean up its mess.

I've tried to code around this issue, please let me know if it's fixed when v0.99 comes out soon.

best,
