Headless UPnP Renderer

I needed a small headless UPnP media renderer for Linux (for small footprint-use in a Raspberry Pi or CuBox), but there was not much available.

Found this old project GMediaRender - but it was incomplete, several basic features missing and the project has been abandoned several years ago.

So this is a fork of those sources to resurrect this renderer and add the missing features to be useful (Original sources in savannah cvs). To distinguish this project from the original one, this is called gmrender-resurrect.

After many features added, this is now a very usable, headless UPnP renderer that I would consider stable. You don't see many changes in this git - don't worry, this project is not abandoned, but it just works as intended (I use it every day). If you run into problems, please file bugs, write me directly or send a pull request; I am busy but will try to respond.

If you have tested gmrender resurrect with your control point, please add it to the Compatibility Wiki page (even if there is a problem). At this point, it should work with all media controllers, if not, please file a bug so that we can figure out the issue and I can make it work for you. See how to create a logfile that helps to narrow down things.

If you're running this on a Raspberry Pi, you might be interested to connect a little LCD display. Check out the upnp-display github project.
