Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 833208
banshee does not include upnp support
Last modified: 2013-04-30 07:40:54 EDT
Description of problem:
Banshee 2.4 has support for UPNP but it's not included in fedora 18.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Nombre : banshee
Arquitectura : x86_64
Versión : 2.4.1
Lanzamiento : 1.fc17
Tamaño : 13 M
Repositorio : installed
Desde el repositorio : updates
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start banshee
2. go to extensions
3. no upnp
This is still happening in banshee 2.6 in Fedora 18
Fedora doesn't include mono-upnp requirement for this feature.
I'll give it a try.
I made a quick dirty hack: http://olea.org/tmp/banshee-upnp/
I don't have a real upnp enviroment to check if it's really working. Compiling is fine but I would like to be sure the feature really works before submitting mono-upnp to Fedora.
Would you mind to try it and give some feedback here, please?
I've switched to fedora 19 and i'm using x86_64, can you provide those packages to test? Also, you could install rygel to do some testing with banshee.
Seems I can't build x86_64 with mock in a i386 machine.
I can give you all srpm's if you would build by yourself.
The good news are I found a 0.1.2 release and seems to find right the dlna services running in the same machine. The plugin outputs some warnings but seems to be minimaly stable. So I'll work for a Fedora package.
After several tests, including compiling banshee's master (2.7.0) I've found the upnp plugin es very unestable and brokes banshee.
IMO is not useful to add a feature which would break the user experience.
Anyway, I encourage you to work with upstream to stabilize it, since it's a desirable feature.
