Some devices / software do not show media if they cannot play use container, stopping the possibility of it be transcoded.
VLC and Hisense TV's both do this - i'm sure there are others.

This change returns all media via DLNA with the extension .ts. The original file extension is passed as a parameter.

Once the request to stream has been received, this correct file extension is used for transcoding selection / playback.

Have tried without using a file extension - but the same issue occurs.

Suspect this is the cause of #2371.
