I recently got a Chromecast and I'm using rygel as a UPnP AV
MediaServer controlled by BubbleUPNP to server videos stored on my
file server to my Chromecast. So far so good: it works a treat with
content like VOBs off DVDs converted to MP4 with the aid of ffmpeg.
However is doesn't play MP4s straight out of get_iplayer (just using
--get, no other flags). I've discovered I can fix this by using ffmpeg
to re-encode but I was wondering if anyone had been this way before and
was aware of a switch I could give to get_iplayer to make it produce
MP4s which were Chromecast compatible straight of the box.
