Topic: MiniDlna

A very nice tool to stream to your media devices.
Even works well on Showcenter 1000 200 250

Works fine here...


MiniDLNA is server software with the aim of being fully compliant with DLNA/UPnP clients. The MiniDNLA daemon serves media files (music, pictures, and video) to clients on a network. Example clients include applications such as XBMC, and devices such as portable media players, smartphones, and televisions. MiniDLNA is a simple, lightweight alternative to MediaTomb, but has fewer features. It does not have a web interface for administration and must be configured by editing a text file.

1. Install MiniDLNA:

apt-get install minidlna

2. Set correct ownerships to MiniDLNA's database and log file:

chown minidlna:minidlna /var/lib/minidlna/
chown minidlna:minidlna /var/log/

3. Create a media directory and set permissions:

mkdir /mnt/data/Media
chmod -R 777 /mnt/data/Media

4. Edit MiniDLNA's config file:

nano /etc/minidlna.conf

Be sure to uncomment, name and set the correct directories for:


5. Reboot:


Note: you can manually start MiniDLNA but it should start automatically after each reboot.

/etc/init.d/minidlna start

Note: MiniDLNA requires time to index your Media. In the event of an error, try deleting the database and reindexing your media:

/etc/init.d/minidlna stop
rm /var/lib/minidlna/files.db
/etc/init.d/minidlna start

To correct the inotify warning in the minidlna.log file, do the following:

nano /etc/sysctl.conf

Append this to the bottom of the file:

fs.inotify.max_user_watches = 100000
