Anyone ever wanted to watch movies from their uPnP MediaServer in Banshee? Well, I can!
After doing quite a bit of cleaning of the code I have been able to do two things, first bring performance up significantly and secondly find more than one media type on a server. I have used this to add video support to the client and it works quite well!
With this code clean it should be very simple to add other media types uPnP supports such as AudioBooks, AudioBroadcasts, VideoBroadcasts and even Playlist.
Next on the list is to add some quirk managing to further speed up parsing on servers not implementing search properly (way to many sadly). After that I’ll start tackling the server part.
Till next time, yours truly, Tobias.
