dlna-how used by MMW and the *standard*

Post by dtsig » Thu Oct 10, 2013 6:54 pm

I am looking to see what is 'required' by dlna standard and what can be 'defined' by the server side. So what i am hoping for is that someone has a link to the specification for mmw (developers always have some kind of write up on how they are implementing any data interchange/api communications) and a link to the definition.

I have looked at dlan.org and they appear to have a document you can buy but hoping there is something available for less :)

If you have any pointer i would greatly appreciate it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Li ... k_Alliance note that DLNA is really the certification and that UPnP is the underlying technology. The basics are that a server can share (stream) media to a client, that's all there is to it.

Thanks Lowlander. Actually my question is about the communication back and for. When my blu-Ray connects to the server what is it expecting in return? Then when I select 'tv' what does the service get and what does the blu-ray expect back.

I guess my op wasn't quite complete/right.

Thanks again

dtsig,

the complete set of UPnP specifications can be found at http://upnp.org/sdcps-and-certification/standards/. You might want to have a look at section "Device Control Protocols".

The UPnP Forum also offers a single download file containing all UPnP documents.

Thanks for that. I had gone to that site but there seemed to be a *need* to join ... like on the dlna site.

I will go back and check those links.

Thanks again
