Server HTTP response to file request RRS feed

  • Question

  • In a project I'm trying to send a file(mp4/video) in a http response. I'm sending all data at once for now and trying to figure out what's happening.

    The problem I've encountered is that the browser(IE 11) SOMETIMES aborts/close connection after it sends the first request for a resource, which makes my send attempt invalid. It doesn't matter if I send() or recv() after the request, both returns error code: 10054.


    This is the conversation. The second attempt works(all bytes are sent as you can see) and I can play the file in the browser.
