I've been playing with this lately. I've "unslung" a NSLU2 and installed =
"TwonkyMedia" (http://www.twonkyvision.com) UPnP server on it. I'm =
having a difficult time finding a decent Windows Media Player plug-in =
that works reliably (On2Share bombs on Internet Radio)l. I have found, =
however, a great linux solution that could be a model for achieving (at =
least the client side of) UPnP on Misterhouse under Linux.
Linux users (or anyone with a CD bootable P2 class or greater doorstop), =
check out GeexBox: http://geexbox.org/en/index.html. This is a bootable =
CD (only 8 meg) that boots the machine into a UPnP media player. =
Their technique uses a UPnP AV client that creates a mount point on the =
local file system for the UPnP Media Server's content =
(http://djmount.sourceforge.net/). They use mplayer for their media =
player (my personal favorite). It seems like it wouldn't be to difficult =
1) run djmount
2) then wrap a media player with a MH perl\web interface to access the =
files on the UPnP mount point.
I wish I knew how to do it. I'd be working on it right now!
