The upnp code in VLC is beyond idiotic.

It goes into recursion to get all files on the server.

The correct fix is doable with VLC 3.0.0, and requires to have a upnp
acess module with readdir, and a service discovery too.

The work-around fix for 2.2.0, is to use a xspf playlist to do the
browsing, like we do for shoutcast. Ugly, but working.

I can help with the implemenation.

With my kindest regards,
