Always good to see a gupnp post, any chance of a banshee extension in the future? That would rock hard :)

Yeah, I have vague plans of implementing Rygel's D-Bus MediaServer spec (http://live.gnome.org/Rygel/MediaServerSpec) in a Banshee plugin. This will have the effect of your Banshee plugins to be shared over UPnP via Rygel (with added transcoding features as a bonus).

Although the task itself should be not be any rocket science but unfortunately my mono skills are near to 0 to do this task myself any time soon. :( Any volunteers?

Might look into it when I'm done with the Database thing

Zeenix, we just released a new software engine that converts all home automation standards to UPnP (Z-Wave, Insteon, soon Zigbee and KNX/EIB). And we're offering free hardware and cash to people who make UPnP Control Points because we'd like to be able to offer our customers multiple choices for control points that run on their platform of choice. Would you be interested in working with us? We have the announcement here: http://micasaverde.com/luup_intro.php

Paul!

Sounds like a cool project.

If "working with you" means me continuing my work and you providing me some UPnP hardware to help me in making sure our UPnP stack + control points are compatible with them, yes that would be great. Please contact me at zeenixAT gmail.com
