What is Python-BRisa Apps

=========================


Python-BRisa Apps is a set of UPnP applications built using Python-BRisa UPnP
framework. The current set is composed by three applications, all concerning
UPnP Audio/Video [1]:

- brisa-media-server: UPnP A/V Media Server 1.0 implementation [1] with addition
of a plugin architecture. Allows users to share multimedia items over UPnP with
almost zero-configuration

- brisa-media-server-plugins: Customization plugins for brisa-media-server 
(Youtube, Flickr, Shoutcast, Maemo Multimedia)

- brisa-media-renderer: UPnP A/V Media Renderer 1.0 [1] implementation using
gstreamer. Enables a machine to render media from any server, when controlled
with some control point*

* For the curious, there are common third-party control points that can control
a running server and renderer: Media Streamer (Maemo devices - N8x0), GUPnP,
 Cidero and many others.

Python-BRisa Apps runs on the maemo platform, Linux and on Mac with a few tweaks.
We would really appreciate community feedback, bug reports and feature requests
concerning attempts to run it on other systems.
