     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 disable inotify.

             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 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).

             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 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.

             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.
