Thanks for clarifying that Philipp.

Yeah, I compared the time stamps in the error.log and access.log (below)
and saw the corresponding HEAD requests. I've been getting a lot of
these so I thought that there was something I could do to allow these
clients to connect to the stream. I guess I just need to ignore them.

Thanks
Damian
