=========================================================================== Seeking a maintainer This project is seeking a maintainer. The original authors abandoned the project, even the web-site is now gone. I (htgoebel) exhumed the source, split it into sub-projects and converted it to git. But I'm not able to maintain it. So If you are interested in this software, I'll happily hand over ownership of the project. =========================================================================== =========================================================================== Coherence - a DLNA/UPnP Media Server and Framework for the Digital Living =========================================================================== Coherence is a framework written in Python, providing several UPnP MediaServers and MediaRenderers, and enabling your application to participate in digital living networks. It is licenced under the MIT licence. Coherence is known to work with various clients - Sony Playstation 3 - XBox360 - Denon AV Receivers - WD HD Live MediaPlayers - Samsung TVs - Sony Bravia TVs and much more... http://coherence-project.org/wiki/SupportedDevices As time evolves you will find in this file more detailed installation and basic configuration instructions. For now please pardon the inconvenience and have a look @ http://coherence-project.org Installation from source ======================== After downloading and extracting the archive or having done a git clone, move into the freshly created 'Coherence' folder and install the files with sudo python ./setup.py install This will copy the Python module files into your local Python package folder and the coherence executable to '/usr/bin/coherence'. http://coherence-project.org/wiki/DocumentationDepartment Quickstart ========== To just export some files on your hard-disk fire up Coherence with an UPnP MediaServer with a file-system backend enabled:: coherence --plugin=backend:FSStore,content:/path/to/your/media/files A list of all available backends will get printed with:: coherence --help More information about the backends and their specific configuration: http://coherence-project.org/wiki/Backends For a continuous operation the use of a config file is highly recommended. http://coherence-project.org/wiki/XMLConfig The config file can be placed anywhere, coherence looks by default for ``$HOME/.coherence``, but you can pass the path via the commandline option '-c' to it too:: coherence -o /path/to/config/file -more -options Troubleshooting =============== If your MediaServer doesn't show up on your client most of the time networking issue are responsible for that. - Your system has more than one network interface? Specify the network interface to use in the config file. - Add a multicast route, pointing to the proper network interface:: route add -net 188.8.131.52 netmask 255.0.0.0 eth0 - Any firewall on your system? Writing and integrating your own backend/plugin =============================================== You can extend the functionality of coherence by writing your own backends/plugins. - A good starting point for coders, interested in writing their own backend, would be taking a look at the LolCatsStorage example. The LolCatsStorage is a very simple and well commented backend. You can find it inside the backends directory of coherence. - To integrate your own backend, open the file ``setup.py`` of the coherence installer and add it to the list of ``entry_points``. Also copy your backend into the subfolder ``coherence/backends`` of the coherence installer. Finally start the installation like described above (Installation from source). Support ======= First there is our wiki at http://coherence-project.org/. If you find an error there or think there is some information missing please get yourself an account and correct that issue. Thx! Then we have a mailinglist firstname.lastname@example.org. You add yourself here: http://lists.beebits.net/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/coherence-dev And last but not least, there is our irc channel irc://irc.freenode.net/#coherence where a lot of other users and most of the developers are around. ..
