Browse DLNA Media Servers in GNOME Photos

Status: Completed


With this, we want to turn GNOME Photos into a Digital Media Player (or DMP) that can browse DMSes (DLNA Media Server) on a local network. It will also extend existing DMC (DLNA Media Controller) capabilities. Currently it can push the local/cloud content to DMRs (DLNA Media Renderer). With it acting like a DMP now, content can be pushed from DMSes to DMRs.

Media Servers are added in gnome-online-accounts. Miner mines the contents for the available media servers (online) which acts as an input to the gnome-photos for displaying (DMP) and pushing it to other DMRs.
