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.
