With AirTwist, you can now stream your music, video and photos from your Android phone to a TV using a PS3 or XBox. This is the first Android product released which is powered by our Platinum UPnP SDK.

TwonkyBeam lets you send Music/Photos/Videos to UPnP Renderers (such as XBMC) from Web pages as you browse the Net. Since Platinum UPnP SDK is powering XBMC, this is cool. Check it out:

Platinum 0.5.3 released

October 10, 2009 3 comments

Last night, I published a spanking new version of Platinum. It fixes many issues and rare crashes (some contributed by the developer behind the awesome foobar foo_upnp plugin, merci Michael!). A lot of effort was put into revamping the Device discovery and housekeeping to prevent access violations when trying to access a device while it’s being removed from the network for example.

Windows 7 PlayTo is now supported as well as the new TwonkyBeam product from TwonkyVision. Additionally, all the DLNA compliance work I have been doing in the last months are in there.

You can find it at the usual place here. I have also started to uploaded some binary versions of the sdk (headers + libs & executables) for different platforms (osx, cygwin, win32) in case some people are just interested in trying out the sample apps. Next is documentation.

Update: I have also committed this new version to the XBMC project.

DLNA DMC Compliance

September 9, 2009 4 comments

Tonight, I have finished making Platinum DLNA compliant with the DMC profile. A DMC (Digital Media Controller) browses a DMS (Digital Media Server) or MSD (Media Server Device) and control the playback of DMP (Digital Media Player) or MRD (Media Renderer Device).

In the process, I have fixed many bugs, crashes, deadlocks and will publish version 0.5.2 anytime now.
