So great to have discovered that our favorite media server and player VLC from VideoLan will be getting DLNA/UPnP media server capabilities.  On this blog entry made by Mirsal Ennaime, funded by Google’s Summer of Code 2008 program, he will be assisting VideoLan with the addition of these new server features.

Finally those of us with PlayStation 3’s can have a complete solution for our media libraries.

I know I will be on the edge of my seat waiting for this one!

  1. Does this mean I can use VLC to stream directly to my Samsung LE32C630(K1W) via ethernet? There are many servers already supporting DLNA, but I can only use the Samsung PC Share Manager, because it is the only one that supports (.SRT) subtitles.
    How about VLC? Is this going to work? I hope so, because VLC is one of the best available.

  2. Very well,
    VLC gets/already has support for DLNS/UPnP media streaming, but how about the client side.
    To set up a UPnP/DLNA Media Server nowadays is as easy as eating cookies.
    But a well working Client still has to be found.

  3. Mirsal,

    Definitely…I searched all over for any news about the support for this in VLC and just found a lot of other people posting about “looking for DLNA/UPnP in VLC” !!! So I think support is universal on this one!

    If possible I will be following progress 🙂

    Thanks for your hard work too!
