Lynx Enables Developer Community to Create Media Players Compatible with Twonky Server
At Lynx, we believe the more Twonky Server compatible media players there are available to end users, the more valuable Twonky Server is to them. Increasing the perceived value of Twonky Server to the end user, increases this same value of the device it is embedded in (e.g. NAS, STB, Router, Residential Gateway). To enable the development of more media players, that are compatible with Twonky Server, we have decided to publish the Twonky Server REST APIs.
How can Developers Leverage the Published Twonky Server REST APIs?
Developers who extend an existing media player, build a mobile app player, PC application or customized web UI - and implement the Twonky Server REST APIs - can now discover Twonky Server and all of its media files, without the need for a UPnP stack. Further, these media players will be able to offer additional Twonky Server features such as media server aggregation, multi-user, Sonos, Chromecast, Fire TV and Apple TV support.
As Twonky Server is the leading media server on the market, developers who leverage our REST APIs now have a way of making their media players more attrative to end users. The APIs are published at docs.twonky.com/display/TS/.
