This is still happening in banshee 2.6 in Fedora 18
Comment 2 Ismael Olea 2013-04-17 05:27:54 EDT
Fedora doesn't include mono-upnp requirement for this feature.

I'll give it a try.
Comment 3 Ismael Olea 2013-04-18 16:59:48 EDT
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.

Comment 5 Ismael Olea 2013-04-21 14:21:05 EDT
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.
Comment 6 Ismael Olea 2013-04-30 07:40:54 EDT
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[1] to stabilize it, since it's a desirable feature.
