I´ll take this task as we discussed yesterday.
Have already started to write down what mods need to be done. It´ll be in wiki in a couple of days.
Need to figure out which pluto_media columns to be mapped to which columns in upnp server.
I think I have decided to use MediaTomb to do dlna/upnp services.
It have one big advantage over others. It can play audio/video streams, like the youtube stream plugin that it have.
In the future I see that we can create a stream_plugin for lmce that present audio, video etc to mediatomb and then be able to control which video for example plays on that stream from an orbiter.
So is the decision to go with MediaTomb over fuppes agreed? I have no strong feelings either way... except that I am already somewhat familiar with fuppes.
It depends on how we defined agreed upon.
Me and TSCHAK had a chat about it yesterday and as I have written earlier MediaTomb have several features that fuppes don´t have.
One other thing is that fuppes have been forked into fuppex because the original author is nowhere to be found.
Third, fuppes only support sqlite as backend. MediaTomb support mysql too which will hopefully make the integration seemless.
Fourth, MediaTomb support the concept of relaying streams. For example a youtube video can be transcoded and presented to a upnp/dlna device.
And last but not least. Support for Xbox360 and PS3 is excellent. Actually MediaTomb was the first upnp server that supported PS3 and even support thumbnails for media presented to the PS3 and probably to others too.
This mean we can hopefully take lmce media thumbnails and present it to MT directly.
I´m open for other suggestions but for now I think MT is the best choice and it´s not complicated.
