gnome 3 to integrate media sevices better?
I have not tried g3 yet ...anyone here messed with rygel on gnome 3 yet?
is slated to become the core dlna server. This should finally allow pulse to work as a true media server. Configuration of pulse in gnome 2 versions has the option to make pulse discoverable as a dlna service, though is grayed out even if you install libgnupnp and the current versions of Rygel just do not work yet.
With Gnome 3 perhaps pulse is finally coming of age. With the transcoding capabilities of certain unmentionable libs then it should be possible to stream just about anything
I do not see the actual desktop being streamed as say an mp4, m4v or other codec. Not that this could not be done. It is still a long way down the road unfortunately. Even Windows 7 won´t do it except to proprietary devices like an xbox and only with a hashed up version of wmv, that does not work anywhere except on xboxes.
All this aside I do see a future where linux distros will be able to stream just about anything to your media tv or blueray player. After all most of these devices run linux kernel derived firmware!
