     minidlnad — lightweight DLNA/UPnP-AV server


     minidlnad [-f config_file] [-d] [-v] [-u user] [-i interface] [-p port] [-s serial]
               [-m model_number] [-t notify_interval] [-P pid_filename] [-w url] [-S] [-L] [-R]

     minidlnad [-h | -V]


     The minidlnad daemon is a DLNA/UPnP-AV server sharing media files (video, music and
     pictures) to clients on your network. Clients are typically multimedia players such as vlc,
     totem and xbmc, and devices such as portable media players, smartphones, televisions, video
     game entertainment systems and blu-ray players.

     By default, minidlnad listens on all the network interfaces (except loopback) for clients.
     This behavior can be changed on the command-line using the -i option, or in the
     configuration file through the network_interface option (see minidlna.conf(5) for details).


     Most of the options below can also be set in a configuration file, as described in

     -d      Activate debug mode (do not daemonize).

     -f config_file
             Specify the location of the configuration file. Uses /etc/minidlna.conf by default.

     -h      Show help and exit.

     -i interface
             Network interface to listen on. Can be specified more than once.

     -L      Do not create playlists.

     -m model_number
             Model number the daemon will report to clients in its XML description.

     -P pid_filename
             PID file to use; the default is /run/minidlna/

     -p port
             Port number to listen on.

     -R      Forces a full rescan of the media files. First it will remove all cached data and
             database. Any bookmarks will be lost.

     -r      Do a non-destructive rescan of the media files on start-up.

     -S      Stay foreground. Can be used when minidlnad is being managed by systemd

     -s serial
             Serial number the daemon will report to clients in its XML description.

     -t notify_interval
             Notify interval, in seconds; defaults to 895 seconds.

     -u user
             Specify which user minidlnad should run as, instead of root; user can either be a
             numerical UID or a user name.

     -V      Show the program version and exit.

     -v      Verbose output.

     -w url  Sets the presentation url; the default is http address.


             Default system-wide configuration file. See minidlna.conf(5) for details on the
