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.
