PostPosted: Tue 08 Jun 2010, 01:44    Post subject:  MiniDLNA media server
Subject description: compliant with DLNA/UPnP-AV clients
 

MiniDLNA (aka ReadyDLNA) is server software with the aim of being fully compliant with DLNA/UPnP-AV clients.
Works maybe on any Puppy. (no dependency)

UPDATE: 5 Jan 2012
I made 2 options. Would like to hear your feedback:
minidlna-1.0.22-2.pet (smaller, shared sqlite)
minidlna-1.0.22-1.pet (larger, internal sqlite)
http://shino.pos.to/party/bridge.cgi?puppy/pup4/opt/pets/
Or from here(follow 'Large packages').

Install the pet, then edit /etc/minidlna.conf from the copy of the template /etc/minidlna.conf.sample.
setting media_dir=/mnt/somewhere ... is enough.

then type the command from a terminal.
Code:
/etc/init.d/minidlna restart


For Puppy-4.x, Wary-5.1x and older, you may get a message 'error while loading shared libraries:libavformat.so.53'.
In this case, you also need to install ffmpeg_runall-0.7.2-p4.pet.

EDIT on 4 Jan 2012:
'/etc/init.d/minidlna restart' refreshes the db_dir, /tmp/minidlna.
EDIT on 9 Jun 2010:
The database is created at the db_dir, /tmp/minidlna as the default.
Remove whole this directory and restart minidlna when the media directory is changed.

Holy Crap!!

This is awesome stuff. I have never used DLNA or UPNP media serving technologies before. I had been trying to do the same thing via samba to my phone, which was somewhat successful, but this is *perfect* for media.

I have seen this for using with PS3's and similar, but never considered it for my use. Cool.

Thanks heaps

This pet works great. I can watch videos, images and listen to music served from Puppy over WiFi on my Philips TV.

But i wonder if anyone could compile the latest version (1.0.22 - Released 24-Aug-2011) into a pet?

thanks

OK, updated minidlna-1.0.22-p4.pet with _NLS.
New script auto mounts the media drive at booting up PC.
Say, you can set the media_dir=/mnt/sda2/media, then the /dev/sda2 is mounted on /mnt/sda2 at boot.

Enjoy!

hi Shinobar,

thanks for the fast reply Very Happy

But this version does not start. I get the following error
Code:
# /etc/init.d/minidlna restart
minidlna stopped.
/usr/sbin/minidlna: error while loading shared libraries: libsqlite3-3.6.12.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
minidlna is not running.


i noticed the pet is much smaller. Is 1.0.22 an update for 1.0.18 or a complete replacement?

Try minidlna-1.0.22-1.pet, contains internal sqlite.

You've read my mind Smile
I have been trying to, unsuccessfully, add either Media Tomb or Minidlna most of today.

Found your minidlna-1.0.22-1.pet, and installed upon Slacko 531.
Happy to report that all seems well. Panasonic TV.

Thank you so much...

(a) Which file types does the "renderer" on your TV work with?
My Sony Bravia KDL 32EX503U only plays MP4.
[Most advanced filesystem accepted when connected direct via USB = FAT32, not NTFS or ext2,3,4]...
And only provided that was their original form as produced.
i.e. Not converted from some other filetype.

(b) The miniDLNA version I used back then [some weeks back] worked just fine...
But the Sony limitations made it pointless.
I'm now using a £30 "Mini HD Media Box", that plays all known multimedia filetypes to my TV from an external USB HDD or Flash Drive or SD/MMC memory card.
See post #2 in this thread.

Just a little quirk I found whilst testing some conversions from 'ogg' to 'mp3.

Sylvander was advised by the manufacture of his TV, that the TV would 'know' when a file had been altered from its original format: Whilst attempting to play the converted mp3 file results in the TV switching off, and back on again: no errors reported on TV! <strange>

I should add that I have no prior experience of converting etc - so more an observation - and most likely a user error on my part, not a critique of the application. Smile

Thank you for this - works great. I have it running of an old eeePC 701 with pupeee.

My media drive is actually a USB network drive however the router is not DLNA so it can't be seen directly by my sony blu ray player hence the need for miniDLNA. Is there any way to automatically mount a network drive on bootup along with minidlna?


Once again many thanks for a great app and easy step by step set-up

You can look up the script /etc/init.d/minidlna, and find what modification we need.

minidlna-1.0.22-1.pet works pretty well for me.
But substitle in the same folder (and with the same name "video_name".srt) with the movie doesnt come while viewing on another pc with vlc.
Has anyone an idea how to make it work?
Thank you for every answer.
