mDNS Browser API
mDNS Browser API — Using the mDNS browser API
The mDNS browser API allows a client program to discover and connect to DMAP services. The dmap_mdns_browser_new function creates a new mDNS browser object. Passing DMAP_MDNS_SERVICE_TYPE_DAAP to this function results in a DAAP browser, and passing DMAP_MDNS_SERVICE_TYPE_DPAP results in a DPAP browser. Subsequently calling dmap_mdns_browser_start and g_main_loop_run causes the browser to begin watching for services of the appropriate type.
The mDNS browser object emits a "service-added" signal for each DMAP service encountered, and it emits a "service-remove" signal when a service disappears. We describe these callbacks in the next sections.
