Well I attended my first Akademy this year and it was really AWESOME.
Wait, what did you just say? I have a typo in my first line/title of my blog post?
No…I really meant Akademy, not Academy. Akademy is the annual world summit of KDE which was held this year in A Coruña, Spain.

I reached Rialta Hotel on 24th at night. So, I missed some kind of Spanish ceremony/tradition but my friend, Pinak has clicked some photographs and it really looked cool.

Hello everyone,
It’s been a long time since I wrote my last post. In my last post, I had described my SoK project, how DLNA/UPnP media client works and my plans about implementing DLNA/UPnP media server.
If you have not read my previous post, then here you go.

I have completed the implementation of both DLNA/UPnP Media Server and Client as standalone applications and I have merged these applications into the plasma-mediacenter too but some errors are yet to be resolved related to C wrappers in C++
So, I currently can’t show DLNA/UPnP working inside the plasma-mediacenter but as soon as those errors would be resolved, I will update about it and currently you can check these standalone applications working good :)

Well, it’s been a great experience working on an awesome project Plasma Media Center. Till now I have learnt a lot of things, from which using C library in C++ using wrappers is the one I really like the most.
As PMC is being ported to Plasma 5, it would be worthless merging it in qt4 based branch of PMC. So, I am making standalone app based on Qt5 and would merge it later on once it gets ported completely.

I have used GUPnP library for this as it is the best and most stable library available to implement UPnP. I have used gupnp-tools as the reference. Till Now I have successfully finished the very first step of my project, i.e. show up the files of the MediaServer. I am able to browse the files on the Media Server successfully and that media is accessible over HTTP protocol using the URLs which is terminal output.
