UPnP is a novel networking and content sharing standard for digital home applications with its main feature, automatic discovery technique, allowing client users to fast deploy and easily access multimedia resources shared by UPnP media servers. As the high quality of multimedia content becomes more delicate today, the file size is becoming gigantic resulting from its high bit rate with complex encoding format. So the high-capacity optical storage media will undoubtedly play an important role to store quantities of huge content today. This paper proposes a real-time recording scheme to record real-time video stream on Blu-ray discs under UPnP systems to satisfy the emerging storing demand for high quality media streaming content.
