    I am trying to play mp4 files containing xvid video and aac audio but dsm-320 says it unable to play the files.  Playing through tversity works OK.

    I have looked at wireshark captures but nothing really stands out.  TVersity appears to supply mime type as video/MP4V-ES.  I have set mediatomb to supply same mime type (and wireshark capture shows it is supplying that type) but still says unable to play.

    I can supply wireshark logs if required.

      Hi,

      I fear that this is the same problem as discussed here:
      http://sourceforge.net/forum/message.php?msg_id=4132174

      we were able to figure out that the DSM-320 makes several requests to the same URL, when answering the initial request the server supplies one mimetype, but then a 2nd get request(with range) is answered with a different mimetype setting.

      It almost seemed that the server understood the content of the .avi container and adapted the mimetype on the fly.

      I don't think that we can present a solution in the near future - I still do not quite understand what exactly is happening there.

      Greetings,
