rygel.conf - Rygel configuration file
rygel reads its configuration values from the file $XDG_CONFIG_DIR/rygel.conf or a file given on command line with the --config option. If that file does not exist it uses the file /etc/rygel.conf. Most of the options may be overriden by commandline arguments or envronment variables. See rygel(1) for details on those.
Lists in the configuration files are separated by a semicolon (;). Boolean values may be either true or false. upnp-enabled Enable/disable UPnP sharing of the media files. If set to false, rygel will still offer HTTP proxy URLs for its media files but not actively advertise them via UPnP. interface=INTERFACE Set the network-interface rygel listens on. port=PORT Set the listen-port. enable-transcoding Set to true to enable transcoding in general. enable-mp3-transcoder Set to true to enable transcoding to MP3. enable-mp2ts-transcoder Set to true to enable transcoding to MPEG2 in TS container. enable-lpcm-transcoder Set to true to enable transcoding to Linear PCM. enable-wmv-transcoder Set to true to enable transcoding to WMV. enable-aac-transcoder Set to true to enable transcoding to AAC. enable-avc-transcoder Set to true to enable transcoding to AVC. log-level=DOMAIN:LEVEL[,DOMAIN:LEVEL,...] Comma-separated list of DOMAIN:LEVEL pairs, allowing to set the log level individually for each domain, where DOMAIN is eiher "*", "rygel" or the name of a plugin. Allowed log levels are 1=critical, 2=error, 3=warning, 4=message/info, 5=debug. plugin-path=PATH Set the plugin search path. allow-upload Allow uploading of media files via UPnP. allow-deletion Allow remote media file deletion via UPnP. video-upload-folder If allow-upload is true, use this folder to store uploaded videos. It defaults to @VIDEOS@ which expands to the default directory for video files (usually $HOME/Videos). music-upload-folder If allow-upload is true, use this folder to store uploaded music files. It defaults to @MUSIC@ which expands to the default directory for music files (usually $HOME/Music). picture-upload-folder If allow-upload is true, use this folder to store uploaded pictures. It defaults to @PICTURES@ which expands to the default directory for picture files (usually $HOME/Pictures). force-downgrade-for Semicolon-separated list of device user-agents (or parts thereof) which need a forced downgrade to MediaServer:1 and/or ContentDirectory:1. Warning Only use this parameter if you know what your're doing or are being told to do so; overriding the default value might cause incompatibilites. If you find that adding your device here enables its usage with Rygel, please file an IOP bug so we can include it into the default configuration. Sections for plugins are denoted with [PluginName] and can contain options specific to a plugin (see below) as well these common options: title=TITLE Title of the device implemented by this plugin. There are some variables which will be replaced by rygel. @REALNAME@ will be subsituted by the user's real name, @USERNAME@ by the user's login id and @HOSTNAME@ by the name of the machine rygel runs on. enabled You can individually enable or disable plugins by setting this to true or false.
The tracker plugin uses the centralized database of meta information from the tracker project. See the tracker project website for more information about tracker. share-pictures Enable or disable sharing of all pictures in the Tracker database. share-videos Enable or disable sharing of all videos in the Tracker database. share-music Enable or disable sharing of all music in the Tracker database.
The MediaExport plugin is an alternative to the tracker-backed media export. It extracts meta-data by itself and stores it in a SQLite database in $XDG_CACHE_DIR/rygel/media-export.db on UNIX platforms. Note If both plugins, Tracker as well as MediaExport are enabled, MediaExport will disable itself in favour of the Tracker plugin. There are several options supported by this plugin: uris A list of URIS to expose via UPnP. May be files, folders or anything supported by GVFS. If left emtpy it defaults to export the user's music, video and picture folders as defined per XDG special user directories spec. These default folders can be referenced by @MUSIC@, @PICTURES@ and @VIDEOS@. Locations can be entered as either fully escaped URIS or normal paths. Note If you enter a normal path that contains whitespace there is no need to escape them with either a backslash or putting the string in quotes. Example 1. Possible values for uris uris=@MUSIC@;/home/user/My Pictures;file:///home/user/My%20Videos include-filter A list of filename extensions. If this option is omitted or empty, every file will be analyzed for meta-data. The extensions are case-insensitive. extract-metadata Set to false if you do not care about duration or any other meta-data like artist. This speeds up the initial crawl of the media a lot. Use it to quickly share some files via UPnP. Make sure to define an include-filter, otherwise you will end up with a lot of files exposed which the client cannot display anyway. monitor-changes Set to false if you don't want to have new files picked up automatically by rygel.
The Playbin plugin implements a media renderer (Digtal Media Renderer, DMR in DLNA terms). This plugin was known as GstRenderer. This plugin has no special options.
The ZDF Mediathek is an online archive of broadcasts from the second german television. This plugin can be used to subscribes to the RSS feeds of this service and expose the broadcasts via UPnP. rss A list of broadcast ids. How to get the broadcast ids from the web site is described in the file README.Mediathek (in german only). update-interval Time in seconds after which the plugin checks for new content. The default interval is 1800 seconds (30 minutes), the minimum interval 10 minutes. video-format The mediathek usually offers the videos in two formats, WMV and H.264. Possible values here are wmv and mp4. The default video format is wmv. Note Proxying of general RTSP in rygel as used by the H.264 streams is currently not working very well. Please enable mp4 only if your renderer can handle RTSP by itself.
The GstLaunch plugin allows to expose GStreamer pipelines using the same syntax as the gst-launch utilty. You can configure several items in this plugins. launch-items A list of of identifiers for the pipelines to be exposed. identifier-title Title of the device represented by this pipeline. Identifier is the identifier as set in launch-items identifier-mime Mime-type of the pipeline. identifier-launch Definition of the pipeline in gst-launch syntax. For some examples on writing pipelines see gst-launch(1). An example configuration is available in the distributed configuration file /etc/rygel.conf.
The External plugin is an consumer of the MediaServer2 DBus interface specification. This allows external programs to share their data via UPnP by implementing this DBus specification. The plugin picks up any implementation of this interface on the session bus and exposes the presented media via UPnP. Known implementors of this spec are gnome-dvb-daemon, Rhythmbox and Grilo via the grilo-ms2 project. You can disable the whole functionality by setting enabled=false in the [External] section of the configuration file. Individual peers may be enabled or disabled by creating sections corresponding to the D-Bus names of the peer: [org.gnome.UPnP.MediaServer2.Rhythmbox] enabled=false This plugin has no additional options.
The MPRIS plugin is a consumer of the MPRIS2 DBus interface specification. The implementation conforms to version 2.0 of the standard. rygel exposes media players that implement the provider side of this DBus specification as DLNA Digital Media Renderers (DMR) similar to the Playbin plugin. This means that you can easily turn your media player into a DMR by implementing this DBus specification. Players that implement this spec and are known to work with rygel are Banshee, Rhythmbox and Totem You can disable the whole functionality by setting enabled=false in the [MRPIS] section of the configuration file. The configuration of this plugin is special. Plugin configuration is not done on the plugin but rather per peer that is found providing the MPRIS2 interface. See the following example to set the title for Banshee on MPRIS: [org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.banshee] title=@REALNAME@'s Banshee on @HOSTNAME@ This plugin has no additional options.
