Sorry, that's just wrong. In DLNA/UPnP-AV, the _controlling_ party (in
this case ml_dlna) is responsible for choosing the most compatible
stream and not the server for working around broken implementations.
It's not our task to present any random renderer with just one
compatible stream, we would need to implement half a controller for
that. Instead we offer a list of streams in various formats.

Saying something like this is rather a sign that the "DLNA" in ml_dlna
is a false claim.
