  • IIS Worker process crash on HLS client connect on WIndows 10 w/IIS Media Services 4.1

    This only happens on WIndows 10/IIS 10/IIS Meida Services 4.1, and only one some boxes.   It works fine on Windows 7/IIS 7.5

    My application creates a publishing point using the IIS Media Services REST API and is able to start POSTing to it just fine.  The application uses the Smooth Streaming Format SDK to create the stream.

    I look in INETMGR and the publishing point is receiving data.  If I look in the archive directory the files are all being written correctly.  

    Then when I connect an HLS client such as

    The worker process crashes in mpeg2tssink.dll 

    The strange part is that if I start my application again (which re-creates the publishing point and starts streaming to it) the next connect attempt succeeds.

    But if I restart IIS and start over again, it again crashes on the first connect from the HLS client.  Again, restart the application and the next connection attempt succeeds.

    Dump file here:

    Again, this works perfectly fine on Windows 7/IIS 7.5/5/IIS Media Services 4.1

    I have set the correct (AFAICT) permissions on the archive directory as per another thread on this forum.

    Any thoughts?
