Crash in souphttpclientsink

jml5qh
Occasionally I get a crash in souphttpclientsink when I try and stop the stream. I'm on iOS and here's the crash log:

#12
Crashed: souphttpclientsink-thread

I have created a sample project that reproduces the crash: https://www.dropbox.com/s/cw4lwmd7g3mk3dc/SoupHttpClientCrash.zip?dl=0. This pretty much mimics my app where I have an RTSP stream and souphttpclientsink stream going at the same time. The URLs are set to blank, but you can set them in ViewController.didClickStart. In this method, there is a call to createRtspStream with comments about where you insert the different stream URLs.

On the UI, there are just two buttons for stop/start. If you alternate pressing start and stop to simulate restarting the stream you should be able to reproduce. Unfortunately, you won't be able to reproduce it every time but it seems to be a little easier to reproduce in poorer network conditions.

I have also submitted a bug ticket at: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=779334. Please let me konw if you have any questions or issues.

This post was updated on .
I have created another project at https://www.dropbox.com/s/j9wmhzrtbmqi3w9/SoupHttpClientCrash%202.zip?dl=0 where I can consistently reproduce the crash. Once you press "Start", we will continually start/stop the pipeline. After around 15-20 times you will get the  crash. Any ideas?

For benefit of others, here is what fixed the souphttpclientsink crash on the iOS platform. When the pipeline is signaled to stop, the souphttpclientsink plugin's stop gets called and tries to abort the soup session in turn results to free some resources. These resources are still being used by souphttpclientsink-thread, which is still running.

Following code snippet of gst_soup_http_client_sink_stop function should be executed post g_thread_join on the souphttpclientsink-thread.  This fix basically allows all remaining data to be handled by the main loop and returned gracefully before the soup session is aborted.

if (souphttpsink->prop_session == NULL) {
    soup_session_abort (souphttpsink->session);
    g_object_unref (souphttpsink->session); }

Hope it helps!
