How does the Podcast SD work, and what are those add/remove entry

Could someone list the available SD modules, and what they discover
exactly? I know that Shoutcast and SAP output URI listings... I don't
know what UPnP, MTP and Bonjour give. The udev SD can list capture
devices, that may require additional configuration too (e.g. input port
or channel selection).
