    This will be the support thread for the UPNP Server.



    Download the actual file here:

    UPNP Server V0.2

    Right now following file tyes are supported:
    jpg ,pcm ,m3u, mpg ,mp3, 3gp ,mp4 ,aac, wmv, wma, asf, avi, png, wav, asx, tif, gif, bmp, txt

    The server has a fixed UID, so right now put the server only on one PC in the network.
    The name of the Server is "Mediaportal Server" in the UPNP network

    On the server the Intel code generator has been used. It will not be devolped any further by Intel but still is a good solution for now.
    On my wish list for the server would be

    -multiple shares
    -support for UTF8

    Use the MPI installer to install the server. Configure the share directory to your shared files. You might put some folder there like "Video,Music,Picture".
    On the options best would be to start/stop the server anytime the MP start or exit.

    Hope you enjoy this release.
    The UPNP control point (called UPNP Browser will be in a different thread.

    Regards

    Thanks, seems to work with mp3s just fine!

    will test it further...

    1 thing:

    Why is it for mediaportal and not for Mediaportal Tvserver? (or for both....)


    Thanks for this great work!

    Hi cubii,

    the server is quite straight forward. You could even start the server from the command line like

    UPnPServer.exe c:\share

    The server works complete independly from the MP. The process plugin makes it just easy to start the server on the MP startup. And on top the setup for the user is quite easy.

    Regards

    flac

    Hi,

    Would it be possible to support flac files (or transcoding)?
    Could this be a solution for multiroom; so I can listen music with mediaportal and stream it the same time to other upnp clients?

    Hi post4unme,

    I will incude this in the next version. Right now I'm try to get the renderer working in 1.0.1 ! Then you can stream it to where you want, when ever you want.

    ;-)

    Hi there,

    so here some informations about the status. Looking at all different sources it is not easy to say which way I go.
    Still I like the Intel SDK and now I discovered the way like Casey to use the Reflector to change the Intel stack.

    Just reviewing..

    First there was

    bionicdonkey - OpenLounge uPnP MediaServer
    https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/plugins-47/openlounge-upnp-mediaserver-1745/

    doing a server, then contiuned by

    Kaoh , mpTino - mpTinoMediaServer beta
    https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/plugins-47/mptinomediaserver-beta-23989/

    doing a good implemention into the MP.
    Because I was a bit blind I was starting my own UPNP server.

    UPNP Server
    C++ Intel code gererator (will not developed any further)

    Well and now I discovered this code

    Casey - whsUpnp360
    /whsUpnp360 : UPnP MediaServer for Windows Home Server and Xbox 360

    The code is straight forward so I'm already implemented for testing Internet Radio, Internet TV, Podcast, RSS feeds AND
    TvServer!!! connection. Right now I can only say the radio webstreams work for me, I don't have a TvCard anymore.

    From the view of using it as a universal Media Server the core is in a dll so making both a plugin or a TVserver plugin is possible.
    Anyway for the part of the tvserver I migth need somebody to do some test for me. So if somebody want to help me, let me know.

    For now I'm still looking into the code comparing how things are solved in each project. But still I need more time.
    My UPNP renderer is working so far. I'm using the external vlc plugin to render the streams. Maybe I could do a release of that first.

    Regards
    kroko

    I would be very much interested in the TVServer plugin. I can do some testing for you as well. Just let me know.
