I’ve committed a Bonjour services discovery module. Avahi rocks!
So this will let me see if anyone on my network is broadcasting a video with VLC, and let me hop on and watch it? Or am I completely off-base? That would be pretty cool though, if that’s what it does I’ll have to try it on my school’s network. 🙂
Yes, that’s what this enables. However, this is only in the development version of VLC and Linux only at the moment (Avahi doesn’t yet support Windows or MacOS X).
Doesn’t OS X already have a DAAP service discovery model? Just have to wait until Avahi gets ported to Windows before it’s completely crossplatform.
OS X VLC that is.
thadk: Yes, but DAAP is only for music.
I hope you appreciate Apple’s piece offering – naming an ipod after you.
Will you be porting VLC to Maemo too? I know that iNdT has plans of porting ZeroConf.

Windows has one too, as part of iTunes/QuickTime 7. Might be possible to impliment their API for other programs — I dunno.
avahi has a compatibility layer with Apple’s bonjour implementation, so I suggest you take a look at Apple’s API to make your Bonjour module fully cross-platform.
