Coherence is a framework written in Python, providing a variety of UPnP MediaServer and UPnP MediaRenderer implementations for instant use.

It includes an UPnP ControlPoint, which is accessible via D-Bus too.

Furthermore it enables your application to participate in digital living networks, at the moment primarily the DLNA/UPnP universe. Its objective and demand is to relieve your application from all the membership/the UPnP related tasks as much as possible.

New in this - the Red-Nosed Reindeer Revolutions - release

  • new MediaServer backends that allow access to
  • Banshee - exports audio and video files from Banshees media db (http://banshee-project.org/)
  • FeedStore - a MediaServer serving generic RSS feeds
  • Playlist - exposes the list of video/audio streams from a m3u playlist (e.g. web TV listings published by french ISPs such as Free, SFR...)
  • YAMJ - serves the movie/TV series data files and metadata from a given YAMJ (Yet Another Movie Jukebox) library (http://code.google.com/p/moviejukebox/)
  • updates on Mirabeau - our "UPnP over XMPP" bridge
  • simplifications in the D-Bus API
  • a first implementation of an JSON/REST API
  • advancements of the GStreamer MediaRenderer, supporting now GStreamers playbin2
  • upgrade of the DVB-Daemon MediaServer
  • refinements in the transcoding section, having now the choice to use GStreamer pipelines or external processes like mencoder
  • more 'compatibility' improvements for different devices (e.g. Samsung TVs or Apache Felix)
  • and - as every time - the usual bugfixes and enhancements
