how can the music be acsessed vie upnp??

is there a samba share needed??
or is the data provided directly via upnp to the clients?
if it is so, can this also be included to mythmusic that for that also no 
share is needed??

The implementation included in 0.20 has only been tested with the devices
listed in trac.  It's not a totally compliant implementation yet, however,
if you are lucky enough to have a device that does "just work", you will be
able to do the following:

  * Browse and play recorded TV shows.
  * Browse and play Music.

That is all the features currently available.  I am planning a more complete
upnp stack as well as more features.  However, as I stated in a previous
e-mail, it may take some time before I can do more work on it.

Any help coding and/or testing is always welcome.
