I tried connecting to my LG N1A1 (a NAS device which also
acts as UPnP server, admittedly rather old and cheap, but working with
other devices) using VLC's UPnP support, but VLC replies:

upnp services
In upnp.cpp, there's
a "ugly hack" ("The DIDL document is extracted from the Result tag, then
wrapped into a valid XML header and a new root tag"): this actually
break parsing the reply by the LG N1A1.

Attached is a patch which
repairs this: it tries parsing the reply as is, and uses the "ugly hack"
as a fallback only. It makes the LG N1A1 work, and does not break the
other devices I tried, but I haven't tried it with many devices. Also
attached is an XML snippet of a reply by the LG N1A1 UPnP
