  Thats a wise decision, you'll be surprised to know how many people out
there thinks that DLNA is 'easy' and ultimately fail in creating an
implementation from scratch.

  You got the first step right. Once you are familiar with all involved
concepts and have basic understanding of what each spec is about, I
recommend you familiarize yourself with GUPnP APIs (especially about
which component/library is doing what). Once you have done that, I
suggest adding and/or correct existing profiles in gupnp-dlna as the
first task.

  BTW, I'm hoping you either already have access to DLNA docs or you
know that it costs at least 500$ to get access?
