The Lynx Developer Alliance Program
The Lynx Developer Alliance Program is designed for software developers who leverage our Twonky and Lynx MiND components to help their clients address use cases in media and entertainment, as well as the smart home. Our partners integrate our SDKs into the companion apps that they develop for their clients to enable those apps to support use cases such as: controlling and managing smart home devices, playing audio files that are stored in mobile phones and NAS devices, integrating music services into a whole home audio experience, and playing audio and video files on any DLNA, Chromecast, or AirPlay rendering device in the home.
The Lynx Developer Alliance Program offers benefits that include: free developer licenses for our Twonky and Lynx MiND solutions for active partners; paying referral fees to developers who help us secure new customers; and engaging developer partners to perform professional services work as subcontractors for our customers when appropriate.
- 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 attractive to end users. The APIs are published at docs.twonky.com/display/TS/.
