What is Rygel?

Rygel is a collection of DLNA (UPnP AV) services implemented through a plug-in
mechanism. UPnP in simplest words is a set of protocols that defines
how different
devices on a home network can seamlessly (without or with minimum configuration)
communicate with each other. UPnP AV defines how multimedia systems could be
built on top of that. DLNA in simple words is a long list of rules
that implementers
must comply to if they want to achieve interoperability with other
in the market.
