DLNA problems with Photo Channels

Photo channels don't seem to be working properly with DLNA. When I try to access them via DLNA clients, thumbnails are not displayed and the full image never seems to load. They work fine from Plex clients. I am getting these entries in the DLNA log file which might point to the problem:

Is there a way to set the file extension for the containers?
