[vlc-devel] All things UPNP!

Developers, jb, and maybe mirsal (?)

I am between projects, and I thought it would be nice to give something back to 
VLC. If that is appreciated, that is. :)

I have just finished implementing UPNP client and server for an embedded STB 
device, so the knowledge is fresh. I also added UPNP to my own "llink" media 
content streamer.

I would propose to do the following:

* Use Cyberlink for C UPNP library, uses BSD style license.
* Implement as loadable .so/.dylib/.dll if present (this is the preferred VLC 
way, no?)
* Implement both UPNP client, and UPNP server, with optional UPNP 
MediaRenderer.(Remote control, not a media transcoder as the name implies).

However, I understand that work on UPNP may already have started. Since "too 
many chefs spoils the broth", just let me know if that is the case.

Let's at least have a discussion about UPNP.
