I'd also like to have a try, and building the demo image now.

Hi all,

I've successfully tested the UPnP demo in my office but would
appreciate someone else taking a bash.

Unfortunately you currently need my branch from poky-contrib
(josh/demo) and the corresponding branch from meta-demo (josh/demo).

The renderer and controller are installed together in the
poky-image-rygel image (I've been using the -live variant).

I needed to use amixer to enable the soundcard and increase the
volume on the netbook I was using.

"amixer set Master on
amixer set Master 75"

Run rygel from a terminal and launch gupnp-av-cp and you should be
able to set play music from a content store on the device. I haven't
tested video...
I just setup the environment and gupnp-av-cp could play music from
another host within the network. However it seems that video doesn't
work yet. Does gupnp-av-cp supports video play?
Thanks for testing this Dongxiao!

I'm not sure whether video is required for the demo, but it should be
supported by gupnp-av-cp and Rygel so long as required gstreamer plugins
are installed. What type of video where you trying to play?
Video is a nice to have, but not required for the UK demo.
