Sorry for posting this in the ps3ms developer forums, but I guess I will adress the best "user group" here. Feel free to move the topic.
I'm a JDownloader Developer, and we are currently working on streaming media. The current Implementation provides a http stream to VLC (or other video players). JDownloader's integrated HTTP Server gets the range requests, and cares about serving the requested Data, either from cache(HD), Downloadsystem, or even from Rar files. We provide a kind of "Random Access Stream" to the streaming backend
This works pretty fine, but it would be even nicer to serve not only to local mediaplayers, but through DLNA/UPNP to a big range of Mediarenderer Devices.
You have a lot of experience on this, and maybe we could even use parts of your source for this.
If anybody likes this idea of streaming almost any file directly from the net to TV/PS3, feel free to conribute, or just to guide me the right way.
Besides this Forum, you can reach me for a chat at http://jdownloader.org/knowledge/chat
