Seeking in Transcoded Streams with Rygel
When looking at various UPnP media servers, one of the features I wanted was the ability to play back my music collection through my PlayStation 3. The complicating factor is that most of my collection is encoded in Vorbis format, which is not yet supported by the PS3 (at this point, it doesn't seem likely that it ever will). Both MediaTomb and Rygel could handle this to an extent, transcoding the audio to raw LPCM data to send over the network.
More Rygel testing
In my last post, I said I had trouble getting Rygel's tracker backend to function and assumed that it was expecting an older version of the API. It turns out I was incorrect and the problem was due in part to Ubuntu specific changes to the Tracker package and the unusual way Rygel was trying to talk to Tracker. The Tracker packages in Ubuntu remove the D-Bus service activation file for the "org.
Ubuntu packages for Rygel
I promised Zeeshan that I'd have a look at his Rygel UPnP Media Server a few months back, and finally got around to doing so. For anyone else who wants to give it a shot, I've put together some Ubuntu packages for Jaunty and Karmic in a PPA here: https://launchpad.net/~jamesh/+archive/upnp Most of the packages there are just rebuilds or version updates of existing packages, but the Rygel ones were done from scratch.
Streaming Vorbis files from Ubuntu to a PS3
One of the nice features of the PlayStation 3 is the UPNP/DLNA media renderer. Unfortunately, the set of codecs is pretty limited, which is a problem since most of my music is encoded as Vorbis. MediaTomb was suggested to me as a server that could transcode the files to a format the PS3 could understand. Unfortunately, I didn’t have much luck with the version included with Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid), and after a bit of investigation it seems that there isn’t a released version of MediaTomb that can send PCM audio to the PS3.
