Rygel on Raspbian (Debian Bullseye). Rygel is showing up fine as a UPnP server, but does not show up on my network as a Renderer. I want to cast TO it. I’ve looked through the config and don’t see anything specifically to turn on Renderer. Advice appreciated!
Use Rygel to act as a renderer that remote-controls VLC
Those are two different things and only one of them requires GStreamer
There is no log file, if run as part of your session the output should be in your user’s journal or in the system journal, and if it is not run through systemd, it is up to whoever configured it to run as such where that output lands.
You can shut down the other rygel with rygel --shutdown
Can Rygel actually render a video stream without any external helper application? E.g., OMXPlayer or VLC?
I want Rygel to act in two capacities, consonant with the DLNA spec:
As a DLNA server, serving out my media
As a DLNA renderer, taking media that is cast to it and displaying that media on screen.
Both these functions are working fine on my Ubuntu Jammy workstations.
Now trying to get them to work, both, on my Raspberry Pi Debian Bullseye. Rygel DLNA serving is working; Rygel DLNA rendering is not (even though Rygel is now showing up on my network as a DLNA renderer).
So there must be one last configuration step I need to take to get video to actually show on screen!
