seeseekey.net - Invictus Deus Ex Machina

Bei MiniDLNA han­delt es sich um ein UPnP/DLNA Ser­ver, mit wel­chem man z.B. auf einen Fern­se­her strea­men kann. Im Gegen­satz zu Media­tomb und uShare arbei­tet MiniDLNA pro­blem­los mit Samsung Fern­se­hern zusam­men und bie­tet so MKV, AVI und noch einige andere For­mate. Nur das spu­len scheint lei­der nicht zu funk­tio­nie­ren :(

Möchte man MiniDLNA auf einem Ubuntu Ser­ver auf­set­zen so sollte man es mittels:

sudo apt-get install minidlna

instal­lie­ren. Nach der Instal­la­tion geht es an die Kon­fi­gu­ra­tion. Dazu öff­net man die conf Datei mittels

sudo nano /etc/minidlna.conf

Nach der Kon­fi­gu­ra­tion könnte die Datei dann so aussehen:

# port for HTTP (descriptions, SOAP, media transfer) traffic
port=8200

# network interfaces to serve, comma delimited
network_interface=eth0

# set this to the directory you want scanned.
# * if have multiple directories, you can have multiple media_dir= lines
# * if you want to restrict a media_dir to a specific content type, you
#   can prepend the type, 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)
media_dir=A,/home/seeseekey/share/Media Archiv/Group Musik
media_dir=V,/home/seeseekey/share/Media Archiv/Group Video

# set this if you want to customize the name that shows up on your clients
friendly_name=LEXA

# set this if you would like to specify the directory where you want MiniDLNA to store its database and album art cache
#db_dir=/var/cache/minidlna

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

# 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 ("/")
album_art_names=Cover.jpg/cover.jpg/AlbumArtSmall.jpg/albumartsmall.jpg/AlbumArt.jpg/albumart.jpg/Album.jpg/album.jpg/Folder.jpg/folder.jpg/Thumb.jpg/thumb.jpg

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

# set this to yes to enable support for streaming .jpg and .mp3 files to a TiVo supporting HMO
enable_tivo=no

# 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.
strict_dlna=no

# default presentation url is http address on port 80
#presentation_url=http://www.mylan/index.php

# notify interval in seconds. default is 895 seconds.
notify_interval=900

# serial and model number the daemon will report to clients
# in its XML description
serial=12345678
model_number=1

# 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
#root_container=.

Wenn man mit der Kon­fi­gu­ra­tion fer­tig ist sollte man die Daten­bank ein­mal neu erstel­len. Dies funk­tio­niert mittels:

sudo minidlna -f /etc/minidlna.conf -R -d

Möchte man MiniDLNA neu­star­ten so funk­tio­niert das mittels:

sudo /etc/init.d/minidlna restart

Anschlie­ßend kann man sich seine Medi­en­samm­lung auf den Fern­se­her strea­men lassen.
