Media Network Demo
We're looking to have a section on the web site for the demo that
explains what each use-case is and possibly how it can be replicated.
I'm taking the approach of describing each image. Consider the
The Yocto Project launch event at ECLF 2010 featured a
multi-architecture Media Network Demo. All the source for this demo is
available in the meta-demo git repository as a layer for the poky build
The following images made up the demo:
The poky-image-nas image boots your device as a network attached storage
device. It provides a DHCP service and an NFS server. We used this image
to store all our media.
The poky-image-mediatomb image adds a UPnP content provider via the
mediatomb package. This image mounts the media share from the NAS and
makes it available to UPnP renderers.
The poky-image-rygel image provides gupnp tools and the rygel media
renderer along with the sato desktop. The renderer can be controlled
locally or via any control point on the network. Several devices can run
this image and stream media from the mediatomb device.
o Is this more or less what we are looking for?
Hrm... do we want to explicitly call them out? The point is that it was multi-architecture, but for some to recreate it, the point is that it doesn't really matter what hardware they have - poky can build for any of them.
What do others think, should we mention the specific boards in use at the demo?
Also a simple figure is always more intuitive to catch the intention here. :-)
o Should we modify the mediatomb image to:One thought is, could we convert this demo page into something more useful
o automatically mount a specific share from the NAS?
o add something to the config to automatically scan the
o The poky-image-rygel description needs to be updated as we finalize
as the collection for various use cases on Yocto which can be contributed by
any user, and then here UPnP is the 1st example?
I'm not opposed to the idea, but for now, let's just make it a page where people can go and get more detail about what we did for the demo and get them started on replicating it if they should so choose.
