Alexander Bias reported on matterhorn-users  that ingests to /ingest/addMediapackage fail if executed from the REST docs. The reason for this is that some browsers will send empty fields to the endpoint and some of them are then parsed as URI. That will obviously fail. While it is a correct behaviour of the ingest endpoint, it is not a “nice” behaviour and it should cause no problem to just ignore empty fields instead.
The patch for also fixes this issue.
