NAME

     minidlna.conf — MiniDLNA server configuration file

SYNOPSIS

     /etc/minidlna.conf

DESCRIPTION

     minidlna(1) reads configuration options from the system-wide
     configuration file /etc/minidlna.conf, or the file specified with -f on
     the command line. The file contains keyword-argument pairs, one per line.
     Lines starting with ‘#’ and empty lines are interpreted as comments.

     The possible keywords and their meanings are as follows:

     album_art_names
             List of filenames to check for when searching for album art
             cache, separated by forward slashes (‘/’).

     db_dir  Path to the directory minidlna should use to store its database
             and album art cache. Uses /var/lib/minidlna by default.

     enable_tivo
             Set to ‘yes’ to enable support for streaming JPEG and mp3 files
             to a TiVo supporting HMO.  Set to ‘no’ otherwise.

     friendly_name
             Customize the name that the minidlna server sends to clients.

     inotify
             Set to ‘yes’ to enable inotify monitoring of the files under
             media_dir to automatically discover new files. Set to ‘no’ to
             disable inotify.

     log_dir
             Path to the directory where the log file should be stored.
             Defaults to /var/log.

     media_dir
             Path to the directory containing the media files the minidlna
             server should share. Use this option several times if you have
             more than one directory to share. To restrict a path to one
             specific media type, you can use the following syntax: the letter
             ‘A’, ‘V’ or ‘P’, followed by a comma (‘,’) followed by the path.
             The meaning of the first letter is as follows:
                   ·   ‘A’ for audio files;
                   ·   ‘V’ for video files;
                   ·   ‘P’ for image files.
             For example, if you want to include only video files located
             under the /opt/media/videos directory, you would use
             media_dir=V,/opt/media/videos.

             After making changes to this option, you need to rebuild the
             database.  If you use an init script to start/stop minidlna, then
             you should run (as root) service minidlna force-reload.
             Otherwise, just add -R to your usual minidlna command line
             (minidlna [...] -R).

     model_number
             Set the model number reported to clients.

     network_interface
             Network interface to bind to.

     notify_interval
             Set the notify interval, in seconds. The default is 895 seconds.

     port    Port for HTTP traffic. Defaults to port 80.

     presentation_url
             Define the presentation URL.

     root_container
             Use a different container as the root of the tree exposed to
             clients. The possible values are:
                   ·   ‘.’ to use the standard container (this is the
                       default);
                   ·   ‘B’ to use the “Browse Directory” container;
                   ·   ‘M’ to use the “Music” container;
                   ·   ‘V’ to use the “Video” container;
                   ·   ‘P’ to use the “Pictures” container.
             If you specify ‘B’ and the client device is audio only, then
             “Music/Folders” will be used as the root container.

     serial  Set the serial number reported to clients.

     strict_dlna
             Set to ‘yes’ 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. Set to ‘no’ otherwise.
