Hi Ardit,

the option "SKIPMIME image/* video/* audio/*" should fix the problem.

Option should be added to /etc/havp/havp.conf
Not sure whether the file will be overwritten when the process restarts. [^]

Hi Baldy,

Actually, there is an Mime Type option in Access Policy rules but it is applicable only with "deny access"

We should try putting SKIPMIME image/* video/* audio/* to havp.conf.tmpl (this modification is permanent) and see if this solve the problem.

nice catch,

I hope that there will be a fix included in the next update.

Sorry, but this bug is NOT minor at all !

Especially not in Hotspot Inviroments but also in everydays life! Just think about the immense number of iphone and ipad users!

Kindly request a FAST solution! (bypassing the proxy is no option because it is not possible to enter each MAC or IP Address manually...)

Has any progress been made with this.

I'm looking at deploying Endian as a firewall/proxy and everything was working perfectly until I deployed it and users started complaining about videos not streaming. It appears they are Flash videos that are not working.
Unfortunately this will be a deal breaker for me and I will have to look elsewhere. I'm happy to exclude the complete site from the proxy if necessary however that didnt seem to make any difference.

Could it be anything to do with RTMP Protocol?

Hi timboau,

Can you test this package and post back the results ?

From a ssh session: curl | sh

I have been testing this package for different reasons, but should fix your problem in combination with the /SKIPMIME option above.

Hi baldy,

I've been having the same issue with Youtube and HTML5 videos on the iPad, I tried your fixes (the update and SKIPMIME directive), this still didn't fix the issue.

After hours of messing around I've worked out that the RANGE command needs to be supported by the proxy in order to use pseudo HTTP Streaming on iOS.

If you add the following line to /etc/havp/havp.conf.tmpl:

RANGE true

And then save your changes via the web interface so the template is written into the live config file you should find that both the YouTube app and HTML5 videos in Safari now work.

In the end I commented out the SKIPMIME directive as this didn't seem to help and also seems less secure.

rpm -q havp

root@stan:/etc/havp # cat havp.conf | grep SK
SKIPMIME image/* video/* audio/*

Doesn't fix the problem..

rpm -q havp

root@stan:/etc/havp # cat havp.conf | grep RANGE
RANGE true

youtube and appstore on iphone works

I was facing the same issue. First I passsed the argument of "RANGE true" it didn't work. Then I checked the version of havp which is havp-0.92a-2.endian15.

Then I added SKIPMIME image/* video/* audio/*
everything is working as desired. Thus I am passing two arguments in havp.config.tmpl file

RANGE true
SKIPMIME image/* video/* audio/*

Thanks @fqureshi this fixed the problem for me, too.

yes the SKIPMIME will fix the issue but will also not scann any image, picture, audio for viruses.

Don't use this setting in critical environments where you rely on the antivirus for protecting your data.
