    How about a DLNA server integration to zeroshell?

    Lots of project have support for miniDLNA http://sourceforge.net/projects/minidlna/

    idea is that I have an external USB drive attached to my thinclient – router and I would like to share that media easily to my TV.


    I use since a few month minidlna on zeroshell . it work fine ­čśë
    If you need some help don’t hesitate to tell me how about ….


    I am very interested in your project Zeroshell DLNA. I have a Netgear NAS disk that has always functioned as DLNA Server Product until I installed Zeroshell. If you do not mind, you could make a short tutorial or explain the installation of your project?


    Hello I will do this shortly … The next week .

    as promised :

    cd /Database
    wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/minidlna/files/minidlna/1.1.0/minidlna_1.1.0_static.tar.gz/download
    tar -xzvf download

    decompressing archive create directories etc and usr/sbin where you are . In etc you will find minidlna.conf wich you have to edit like this (for example) :

    # port for HTTP (descriptions, SOAP, media transfer) traffic

    # network interfaces to serve, comma delimited
    network_interface=eth01,eth00 to adapt as appropriate

    # specify the user account name or uid to run as

    # set this to the directory you want scanned.
    # * if you want multiple directories, you can have multiple media_dir= lines
    # * if you want to restrict a media_dir to specific content types, you
    # can prepend the types, followed by a comma, to the directory:
    # + “A” for audio (eg. media_dir=A,/home/jmaggard/Music)
    # + “V” for video (eg. media_dir=V,/home/jmaggard/Videos)
    # + “P” for images (eg. media_dir=P,/home/jmaggard/Pictures)
    # + “PV” for pictures and video (eg. media_dir=AV,/home/jmaggard/digital_camera)
    media_dir=A,/media/Musiques to adapt as appropriate
    media_dir=V,/media/Films to adapt as appropriate
    media_dir=P,/media/Nos_documents/Documents_partages/Mes_images to adapt as appropriate

    # set this if you want to customize the name that shows up on your clients
    to adapt as appropriate

    # set this if you would like to specify the directory where you want MiniDLNA to store its database and album art cache
    to adapt as appropriate

    # set this if you would like to specify the directory where you want MiniDLNA to store its log file

    # set this to change the verbosity of the information that is logged
    # each section can use a different level: off, fatal, error, warn, info, or debug

    # this should be a list of file names to check for when searching for album art
    # note: names should be delimited with a forward slash (“/”)

    # set this to no to disable inotify monitoring to automatically discover new files
    # note: the default is yes

    # set this to yes to enable support for streaming .jpg and .mp3 files to a TiVo supporting HMO

    # set this to strictly adhere to DLNA standards.
    # * This will allow server-side downscaling of very large JPEG images,
    # which may hurt JPEG serving performance on (at least) Sony DLNA products.

    # default presentation url is http address on port 80

    # notify interval in seconds. default is 895 seconds.

    # serial and model number the daemon will report to clients
    # in its XML description

    # specify the path to the MiniSSDPd socket

    # use different container as root of the tree
    # possible values:
    # + “.” – use standard container (this is the default)
    # + “B” – “Browse Directory”
    # + “M” – “Music”
    # + “V” – “Video”
    # + “P” – “Pictures”
    # if you specify “B” and client device is audio-only then “Music/Folders” will be used as root

    And then you can start the DLNA server with

     /Database/usr/sbin/minidlnad -f /Database/etc/minidlna.conf -R

    Of course you can paste it on Startup/CRON post boot to automaticaly start the server on startup .

    Enjoy !
