Overall I agree with Dan's comments, I think they're quite aligned with my concerns exposed in bug 115354. Likely we should use some libsoup API to provide such information but as we aren't bumping requirements soon I guess it's fine.

Anyway, based on the fact that multimedia streams are most of them already compressed data, it shouldn't hurt not to use compression at HTTP level.

I don't think this comment is needed
