Dmitry Sandalov posted a great in-depth article about streaming audio from Ubuntu Linux to a DLNA player without using Rygel. You can read the entire article here. I've tested his solution with my Onkyo receiver and it works fine. The idea is quite clever and simple: "The way I have it now: I pass the pulseaudio stream over HTTP, setup a ‘Favourite’ link on Onkyo receiver then play it. It works a lot more stable without DLNA server".

I'd like to watch a Sopcast stream on my TV, so I'm trying to figure out a way to do it. Internet is great, the solution is very easy. I will use Mediatomb to broadcast the stream to my TV. Mediatomb is running on Ubuntu 12.10 32 bit.
First of all, let's install Sopcast:
|sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ferramroberto/sopcast|
|sudo apt-get update|
|sudo apt-get install sopcast-player|
Let's launch Sopcast from the dash home. If Sopcast returns an error like this:
|sopcast-player : Depends: sp-auth (>= 3.0.1) but it is not installable|
We have to search for sp-auth_3.2.6.deb and install it.
