Full Version: Media server URLs invalid for IPv6 enabled hosts
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
On an IPv6 enabled system, right click on a torrent, content, media server, "copy local stream URI to clipboard" generates an invalid URL when IPv6 is enabled and has an IP on the system.  For example, it gives me:


First, an IPv6 IP used in a URI should be enclosed in brackets (since : is used in the IP and to indicate port).  Second, I'm not sure what the "%3" is but that doesn't seem right.  A URI more like what I'd expect would be:


The URI Vuze provides does not work in VLC.  If I modify the URI as shown and give that to VLC, it works and I get video.


Java 1.8.0_51
 Oracle Corporation
SWT v4508, win32
Windows 8.1 v6.3, amd64
V5.6.2.0/4 az3

Pretty standard dual-stack IPv4+IPv6 network config.  I didn't do anything to make Vuze choose IPv6 for this, it selected that IP automatically when I asked for a local URI.  Oh, and I'm on Win10 pro even though that says 8.1 in Vuze's system info output.  If you need anything more, just ask, though I suspect this is easy to replicate on any IPv6 enabled system.
Regarding '%' check out

Looks like it should be URL encoded though. Can you see if 


works with your setup? (the %3 encodes to %253)
