As I'm not really interested in hacking on network-managers, I've
decided to stop working on MiracleCast. If, some day, there's a
working P2P stack on linux, I might resurrect it. But it sounds more
likely that I'll refer to the Intel solution (WYSIWIDI) instead.
There're also gstreamer plugins for WFD now, so maybe give them a try?



This module is running on established p2p connection with wifi direct, which means that you have to 
setup this network environment to run this module. I hope this link would be very helpful. ( )

You are referring to them, they are referring to you. :)

They provide a gstreamer plugin for Miracast, but quite frankly didn't
bother hacking on Wifi P2P. Hence, they refer to my miracle-wifid hack
to provide a P2P link. If NM provides a P2P API, you can just set it
up via nmcli and then use the gst modules to run Miracast (or you can
just use the ConnMan API right now).


Well at least there is an open RFE - Network Manager
[enh] Add support for WiFi P2P (aka WiFi Direct)

And in this thread I see Patrik Flykt - ConnMan.
Connman WiFi p2p API evaluation

Let's see if NetworkMan can learn from ConnMan. :)

Of course it can learn something :)  We'd rather have NetworkManager
share an API with ConnMan here instead of needlessly re-inventing the
wheel.  I think we came to quasi-agreement in the mail thread you link
to, but need to write up a final spec and get agreement from Patrik.
This might also be a good project for a community member to help out
with too.  So if anyone is interested in the NetworkManager side of
P2P/Direct (and I know some are) please raise your hand!
