  Hmm.. sounds right now that I looked at that UI.

  Agree on transcoding but not interfaces. We don't want media to be
shared on public networks. The plan is to be able to select network by
ESSID so user can decide where the media is shared (home) and where
its not (office, cafe). Unless there is a better way to achieve this?

  Agreed! So I guess we both agree on getting rid of this UI mostly
and move the remaining parts to gnome-user-share UI. Now lets see if
Bastien agrees. :)
