On the FAQ page, it says that mediatomb will work better with certain DLNA TVs if

      <add header=" Streaming"/>
      <add header=" DLNA.ORG_OP=01;DLNA.ORG_CI=0;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=017000 00000000000000000000000000"/>

is added to the config file.  Somewhere on the web, I found the suggestion of using

DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=025000 00000000000000000000000000"

instead.  At least on my Grundig TV, the latter works better.  In particular with 017000, the player doesn't allow seeking (fast-forward, rewind, goto time) in video streams.  With 025000, that becomes possible.  The little info I could find about those flags confirms the fact that some of them have to do with seeking capabilities.

Maybe the code in the FAQ should be changed to 025000?

(Additionally, it seems to have made some video files playable that weren't before: H.264 with more than 4 reference frames, no idea why this might be)
