Is UPnP supported?


If not, what else is used e.g. to exchange data with a router?

Many Thanks

  • Not sure if this answers your question, but you can set up the network by dynamically assigning ips using DHCP based router(which should be automatic) or static ip configuration is valid, which you will have to do manually.

  • Thank you for your respond!
    I'm more interessted in how and what it is supported with the SDK. Is there any API for such things.

  • Well, what kind of API are you looking for? What is exactly your usecase? SDK has APIs mainly for developing widgets and provides UI components and framework, mediaplayer, making http requests, etc all in Javascript. Have you gone through the documentation at http://developer.yahoo.com/connectedtv/?

    Thanks,

  • First of all, thanks for helping.
    Of course i read the documentation but maybe i overlooked due of my english and inexperiencness -.-
    i have two possible use cases:
    first to have a GUI which shows data from a server running somewhere outside.
    Second same case but within a LAN.

    A kind of API would be i.e. Cling for DLNA/UPnP support in Java/Android
    or XMLHttpRequest.

    Thanks again,

  • Thanks for clarifying the use-case. If all you want is to access content from a server over HTTP, then you can use XMLHttpRequest or URL apis. Both support asynchronous fetching of content. However, we don't support DLNA/UPnP.

    If you want to make other connected devices in the home network communicate with the TV widgets(and vice-versa) such as smartphones/tablets/laptops, you can look into our device communication protocol(http://developer.yahoo.com/connectedtv/devicecommunication/ )

    Thanks,
    Vivek
