Support UPnP streaming
What is the problem you are facing?
There seem not to be https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_Plug_and_Play implemented. What I wish is a UPnP functionality in order to let Funkwhale serve content to UPnP capable devices. Let me explain it in more detail:
Let Funkwhale scan for UPnP devices, connect to them, send music and let the device play it.
Let Funkwhale act like a media library / server. The UPnP device "sees" Funkwhale, connects to it and requests content.
What are the possible drawbacks or issues with the requested changes?
- effort needed
- UPnP profiles and even transcoding might be needed to match the UPnP devices' capabilities
Well, when you use Funkwhale as a media player the funtionality is quite limited to the basics. The streaming with UPnP is state of the art and might be expected by many user.
EDIT: changed DLNA to UPnP, as the latter seems the more modern / still used protocol
