What is Rygel?


Rygel is a home media solution that allows you to easily share audio, video and

pictures, and control of media player on your home network. In technical terms

it is both a UPnP AV MediaServer and MediaRenderer implemented through a plug-in

mechanism. Interoperability with other devices in the market is achieved by

conformance to very strict requirements of DLNA and on the fly conversion of

media to format that client devices are capable of handling.
