Coherence - DLNA/UPnP framework for the digital living

Project description

Coherence is a framework written in Python,
providing a variety of UPnP MediaServer and UPnP MediaRenderer implementations
for instant use. It includes an UPnP ControlPoint, which is accessible via
D-Bus too. Furthermore it enables your application to participate in
digital living networks, at the moment primarily the DLNA/UPnP universe.

Its objective and demand is to relieve your application from all the
membership/the UPnP related tasks as much as possible.
