From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.2) Gecko/20010628 BuildID: 2001062815 There seems to be original functionality in Netscape (3 and 4 at least) that allows you to post images using script in some sort of stream. This software: http://www-vs.informatik.uni-ulm.de/soft/wv/webvideo.html is used here: http://jupiter.math.msu.su/~mnn/jpeg.htm To "stream" "video" from a webcam Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to http://jupiter.math.msu.su/~mnn/jpeg.htm 2. Using Mozilla and Internet Explorer you get nothing 3. Using Netscape Communicator 4 and Netscape Navigator 3 you see image changing. Actual Results: Don't see anything Expected Results: See the stream http://jupiter.math.msu.su/~mnn/jpeg.htm http://www-vs.informatik.uni-ulm.de/soft/wv/webvideo.html
WFM on WinNT 4 2001080203 You may have to wait a while for the streaming image to come up. Please try a later build from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/
Using 2001080203 The original URL: http://jupiter.math.msu.su/~mnn/jpeg.htm doesn't show image at all. You should try Netscape 4 to see what I mean, because there is also a Java scroll on the top - that's not what I meant.
WFM win98 build 2001080120. I can see the same images in both NS 4.7 and Mozilla: two banners at the top, and below them a big webcam image that it is updated once a minute. The difference is that in NS the throbber and status bar keep on showing that something is downloaded, but in mozilla they stop after the initial image is shown.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 76776 ***
I really cant verify this bug. Nav4.x and Mozilla shows the same to me. But I think 76776 is about a different problem. Bug 76776 is about "progressive JPEGs". (see http://www.faqs.org/faqs/jpeg-faq/part1/section-11.html ) This bug is about "Server PUSH". Server PUSH is about streaming multiple content on a HTTP response (see http://home.netscape.com/assist/net_sites/pushpull.html )
I can now confirm (after fixing my setup) that I do see the desired result (at least sometimes). Sorry about that. Problem is that I can only do that once per stream. Second time I go to that page, or just try to reload it, nothing shows up. I can go to another stream and it will work, but again, only once. Also, when I try to close Mozilla after that (to try again) it sometimes crashes. That only seems to be that case with Java enabled, so it is probably another bug (I use JRE 1.3.0_01) Here are URLs that I used in last test http://rr-vs.informatik.uni-ulm.de/rr/gui2/gui.head.html http://rr-vs.informatik.uni-ulm.de/rr/OtherView.html
