#42 Workaround 2 for Samsung Smart TV 2012

Unstable (example)
A. Francois

After the issue found and solved by swiergot (http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=3532724&group_id=129766&atid=715782), here is another one : Samsung Smart TV expect mkv files as Content-Type = x-mkv whereas it should be x-matroska.
Therefor 2 solutions :
- change the mapping in config.xml. Samsung TV will play mkv but other players will no more do !
- apply the attached patch, which will make Mediatomb show mkv files as "x-mkv" or "x-matroska" depending on the renderer

    Sorry, but it seems to be a too invasive hack in libupnp, I'd rather like to get things like this in cleanly with a possibility to configure renderer dependencies.

    Ideally libupnp should provide the information about the renderer and let MT decide how to react/what to render/what mimetypes to set.
