Whiteboard

https://live.gnome.org/Rygel seems to be a great option for us. It's written in Vala, provides both MediaServer and MediaRenderer, and we can easily write a plugin to it that makes it use LibraryKit as media source (like it's already done for Tracker).

Notably, it has D-bus API for providing dynamic content that's not stored in libraries: https://live.gnome.org/Rygel/MediaServer2Spec ~shnatsel
