Comment on attachment 442199 [details] Patch View in context: https://bugs.webkit.org/attachment.cgi?id=442199&action=review r=me > Source/WebCore/ChangeLog:10 > + AVFoundation doesn't like it when you give it a range like 0-1/* because it doesn't know the content length. > + To work around this, wait until the entire video is loaded then respond with a known length. > + This isn't great, but it's better than not playing the video at all. So, was the old behavior a race condition based on how fast the video loaded? How did this every work at all?
