I had exactly the same problem with media streamer when using
gmediaserver as UPnP server. I then switched to fuppes [1] and the
problem disappeared. Besides fuppes and gmediaserver I couldn't find
any UPnP media server for Linux which worked with media streamer.

Seems like UPnP is not a standard but a recommendation which leaves
too much room for free interpretation by the particular implementations.
