UPnP and directory structure support

I have recently upgraded to 0.25, everything went smoothly however I use my
PS3 to access MythTV via UPnP. Now that UPnP is integrated with MythVideo
when a UPnP client accesses the Videos folder there is no longer any
organisation, everything in MythVideo is just listed in one huge directory.
With 300+ files stored in MythVideo that is very close to unusable, is
there any way to get the new UPnP server to show subfolders? I saw a
suggestion in Ticket #8801 ( http://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/8801 ) that
directory structure support should be reconsidered, is that still on the
cards?



Cheers,

Dylan

Cheers Gavin,

I assume that is a yes to the directory support being on the
cards and a no to the possibility of the UPnP server displaying subfolders
at the moment?

Heh, sorry, I was using my cellphone. I expect that we will fix that
issue in 0.26. At the moment, that is a known issue in 0.25, and I
don't expect we'll keep it that way forever.

Re: UPnP and directory structure support [In reply to]

No worries, I was just having a poke around in the source code myself to
see if it was something I could contribute to. Is that an area you'd be
open to a patch submission for? And if so is there any documentation on
the data structures involved like UPnpCDSRootInfo, or would I be better
off looking through the code in upnpcdstv.cpp to understand how it all
comes together?

Patches are always welcome. :) Unfortunately, there's not much if any
docs to be had. Something we need to keep working on in the future.
If you can hack it from reading through the code, you're well set,
basically.

Good luck. Hmm, I should go get dinner.

Re: UPnP and directory structure support [In reply to]

I've had a chance to have a good look through the source code, it all
seems pretty straight forward but I was hoping someone could point me to a
reference on the uPnP AV specifications, assume that's what we're using.
I'd just like to get a bit more information on the difference between
items, containers and keys. It would also be handy to know what can and
can't be used for node ids and other things.

Cheers!

The DLNA spec must be purchased to look at it, but the upnp spec is freely
available at:

http://upnp.org/sdcps-and-certification/standards/sdcps/

We currently implement a subset of Mediaserver:1 spec.

David.
