Then, there should be no limitation until pagination is implemented, I
guess. No one will use vlc for upnp if only media up to B* are

30.000 media files on a slow tp-link access point with minidlna are no
problem with the increased limit even with vlc-android on an old i9300.
It still seems faster than other upnp clients for android.

Maybe, I can't remember why I increased the timeout to max.
