Description

When showtime connect to uPNP server's stream represented as file (mediatomb transcoding) it says "Invalid HTTP 200 response" and gives url to file (for example, "http://192.168.1.1:49152/content/media/...&tr=1&pr_name=tv")
When I open this link in browser it gives me videostream with little delay at the start.
I think that showtime cant wait starting of streaming and get error.
I saw in code that player must switching in streaming mode. but this not happens.
Please help.

The problem (I think) is that mediatomb does not report the total file size.

Why do you need to transcode the file?

This is a stream from dvb card - mpeg-ts. When I execute file from showtime mediatomb starts streaming from card to http output. And probably not sents file size.
Also I noticed that file plays with the same method when it stream local file over mediatomb. In this case mediatomb report total size.
Is it possible to play stream without file size ?
