MediaPlayer - Java Based Open Home UPnP Media Renderer
A fully open-source java project that uses the OpenHome API to implement a UPNP Media Renderer.
The MediaPlayer is Java based and so will work on a wide range of hardware and Operating Systems without the need to provide different install packages or recompile the code.
MediaPlayer provides a large support of OpenHome specific devices as well as standard UPnP devices.
The combination of OpenHome as well as mpd does allow MediaPlayer to provide gapless playback (yes, gapless, for beneath 0€ ;-)).
We support the following UPnP and OpenHome Functionality:
Also supported is Apples AirPlay Receiver.
We have implemented a http-daemon to make it possible to:
- Configure and control the whole application via a web-interface.
- View the last 50 log events.
- Display info about the currently playing track, providing info such as lyrics and info about the artist.
- And if using the AlarmClock plugin you can also set a sleep timer from the web page.
The MediaPlayer is easily extendable via Plugins.
Right now, we have the following Plugins:
We have a Wiki where you can find the documentation
MediaPlayer supports the following UPNP devices:
- Assent Control
MediaPlayer is made possible due to the support of the following people.
|Pete Hoyle||Original Source Code|
|Ian Grant||Service Scripts, Songcast repair mechanism|
|Markus M May||OSManager, LastFM Plugin, Fullscreen Plugin, this webpage|
|Marcello||Added support for setNextAVTransportURI in AVTransport service|
|Guus||Design ideas, beta testing, proof reading and display wiring diagram|
The AirPlay implementation is based on the RPlay source code by Benjamin de Callatay
