Rygel in the wild

It looks like the PR1.2 update for the N9 is starting to get rolled out now, so your favourite MediaServer implementation will reach your phone soon.

A short hint if you’re eager to try it and you don’t see any files shared: For complicated and mostly non-technical reasons the device needs to assign so-called DLNA media profiles to images and media files. To start this, the device needs to go into idle mode once, so just let it rest for a while and all media created on the device should be available after that. This is a one-shot thing after the update, any files added afterwards will be fine.

GStreamer 0.11 + JHbuild

If you try to test GStreamer 0.11 there’s this nice gst-uninstalled script; somehow that didn’t work for me as soon as I tried to use more non-gst interdependent libraries so I opted to use jhbuild. Luckily that’s quite easy with the stock gnome jhbuild moduleset.

To do that, I created a new .jhbuildrc-gst-0.11 with the following modifications. skip and modules can of course be adjusted to own needs.

moduleset = 'gnome-world-3.4'
modules = [ 'vala', 'libgee', 'gstreamer', 'gst-plugins-good', 'gst-plugins-bad', 'gst-plugins-ugly', 'gst-ffmpeg', 'gssdp', 'gupnp', 'gupnp-av' ]
skip = ['gtk+', 'atk', 'gcr', 'gtk+-2', 'rarian', 'NetworkManager', 'gnutls', 'polkit', 'p11-kit', 'gnutls', 'cantarell-fonts', 'gtk-engines', 'librsvg', 'gnome-themes-standard', 'libgnome-keyring', 'pango', 'expat', 'libgpg-error', 'libgcrypt', 'glib-networking']
os.environ['JHBUILDPS1'] = '[gst-0.11] '
branches = {
    'gstreamer' : '0.11',
    'gst-plugins-base' : '0.11',
    'gst-plugins-good' : '0.11',
    'gst-plugins-bad' : '0.11',
    'gst-plugins-ugly' : '0.11',
    'gst-ffmpeg' : '0.11'
}
