As the first step a MediaServer compliant to the UPnP standard is available for duty. It should be accessible by any DLNA compatible device. Thereby images, audio and video can be streamed in the network.


The MediaProvider should be available on simple UPnP compatible radios where for easy use virtual playlists are provided as well as on full-fledged SmartTVs based on a HTML5 app. For easy use we would like to use existing features from the device.
