    Default Profile Update Request :: VLC for Amazon Fire Stick

    So I recently bought an Amazon Fire Stick, got the VLC media player on it just to stream via DLNA/ UPnP and it worked pretty ok...

    I had to tweak a few things on my server like the server advertisement interval from 300 to 60 secs due VLC waiting for the advertisement everytime I try to use DLNA/UPnP
    The other thing I had to do is to select the VLC profile and update/tweak it using the ignoresoaplimit flag inside the name element because I have this folder filled with movies, lets say about 400 of them and everytime I tried to browse that folder I was able to see only about 40 / 30 movies in it.

    I tryed browsing directly from a browser and it was showing every single movie in it so I decided to test the textlimit option and everytime I used a smaller value I was able to see more and more movies in that folder.
    Browsing other profiles I found that the flag I needed was ignoresoaplimit and I wanted to share this with everyone out there because it was frustrating.


    Anyhow, the start of the profile has to look something like this:

    Code:
    <MezzmoDeviceProfile>
    	<version>305</version>
    	<device>
    		<guid>5ABCEB97-C663-4d80-97D0-A83483093691</guid>
    		<name manufacturer="Android" model="To VLC" profileactive="1" needsdlnaprotocolinfo="1" ignoresoaplimit="1" needstimebasedseek="1" extended="0" forceconnectionclose="0" needsfileextension="1" maxfilesize="17179869184" />

    Hi,
    thanks for sharing this, when the soap limit is reached the current items collected are sent to the client then the client should request the remaining items like 40 to 100 if only the first 40 were returned but some clients just give up. You should find the Mezzmo android app will behave correctly and display all the files even if the soap limit is reached.
