Re: Module Proposal: Rygel

Sorry for being unclear. Sure I know the difference between UPnP and
CIFS. I am just saying that approach (I incorrectly called it "use

user-specific resources" looks architecturally better than "multiple
user-level daemons".


PS My Popcorn Hour can do both CIFS and UPnP, and I use CIFS :P
