Implementing UPNP in Windows Store Apps

    Question

  • What is the most sufficient and simple way to implement a UPNP Control Point in a Windows Store App? As far as I know, one can always use HTTP messaging over IP, but this is a really long way to go. Is there a comfortable way to access UPNP COM-objects like MediaRenderers or MediaServers from a Store App and invoke actions on them?

  • Thanks! Yeah, I've read that article from the Code Project, they're using HTTP Protocol for communication between devices. I've seen some Windows Phone Apps (not Store Apps, but still running on OS without upnp.dll) for the UPNP/DLNA Control Point like Smart Player and I can't believe it was built straightly with HTTP. There must be some trick or magic.
