DLNA 1.x isn't made for that and I couldn't get much info about DLNA version 2
which should include recording in some form. My vision for a modular home
theater PC software is based on a variety of DLNA servers / renderers etc.
Basically I'm thinking of this:
XMLTV data is chopped into one file per show and linked into directories by
date, station, etc. Using a custom profile the info is published by a DLNA
server or uploader "XMLTV".
Any standard control point is used to select shows for recording by "playing"
these files. In my case this will be a smart phone via WLAN.
A renderer "Recorder" extracts the meta data and performs the necessary magic
like command line generation for recording.
The output file is now published by a standard server and is ready for
An "Ad remover" renderer could be added later.
Any standard control point is used to select shows for playing.
A renderer "mplayer" is used for software output.
As I understand it, rygel is a platform for the required plugins. Especially
the "external" and "gst-launch" plugins might be useful. I could not find any
usage examples. Source code for a renderer that gets data feed on standard
input to a shell script would help me a lot. Given my very limited knowledge
of C and vala, I have difficulties understanding the code and documentation.
Thanks for any hints to existing components, usage examples or other help.
