minidlna.conf — MiniDLNA server configuration file
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:
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.
Set to ‘yes’ to enable support for streaming JPEG and mp3 files
to a TiVo supporting HMO. Set to ‘no’ otherwise.
Customize the name that the minidlna server sends to clients.
Set to ‘yes’ to enable inotify monitoring of the files under
media_dir to automatically discover new files. Set to ‘no’ to
Path to the directory where the log file should be stored.
Defaults to /var/log.
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
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).
Set the model number reported to clients.
Network interface to bind to.
Set the notify interval, in seconds. The default is 895 seconds.
port Port for HTTP traffic. Defaults to port 80.
Define the presentation URL.
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
· ‘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.
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.
System-wide default configuration file.
