Windows Media Player 11 has an issue with metadata for videos. It turns out that it just needs "album" metadata even if unknown.

    Can you describe the issue in more detail?

    Windows Media Player 11 (at least under Vista) does not display video metadata info from MiniDLNA correctly. The video name displayed is not the name of the video, but rather some combination of soap response fields.

    This patch just sends "Unknown" for the album metadata field, if none exists in the database, which appears to be enough for WMP11 to display the correct name.
