ok will do! - thanks again Asphyx!

Yep you got what I got pretty much....
Unfortunately it's not going to work because of what you noted the filename issue...
You can't save a file with that name.
For this to work and transcode properly, Koush is going to have to add a setting to set User Agent in Allcast so Plex can read it and use the appropriate profile. (note this setting would work for any profile based transcoding system other than Plex as well.)

This would also allow you to change the userAgent to fit whatever you wanted to send target to be Roku, CCast or Airplay.

I'm not sure where but I'm betting Koush has a place to make a feature request....It should not be too hard to add to Allcast....
See if you can make that feature request then post the link here so we can vote it up if needed,
