Just because a file is named .mp4 doesn't mean it contains MPEG4 data and conversely a file named can contain MPEG4 data.

I agree but its currently shared-mime-info that always does this detection, not rygel itself. In the next release we'll start to use the new gupnp-dlna library to extract metadata and that does a much more detailed analysis of the file.

Anyway, do file a but please.
