Search with Twonky

Post by rydberg » Tue Dec 22, 2015 4:27 pm


I am software developer and currently I am working on Global Search feature in my product. This feature enables the user to search for any media asset available in the system that has a particular phrase in its metadata.

Now, I would like to also include music/pictures/videos from Twonky server in the search results. How would you recommend doing that? Is using UPNP:Search on root container with one BIG search criteria like:

dc:title contains "search_phrase" or upnp:album contains "search_phrase" or .....

a good way to go? Is there something better?
