response:

Code: Select all

starting MiniDLNA -R (full rescan)
su: can't chdir to home directory '/var/services/homes/minidlna'

But, as I can see, he made the full rescan.
Thanks so far, any ideas on why on file is shown that often sometimes?

It have to be your setup (how U copy file or so) ... never seen such problems and I use miniDLNA since few years already.

There is not much "setup". I just move the file from a local folder via Mac Finder to the share and I'm connected wireless. Nothing more :)

Hi,

I just installed miniDLNA on a DS-215j and it works LOVELY. As usual, miniDLNA is way better than any other DLNA server (including Plex and Synology Media Server). And your package works great without additional effort.

THANKS Nimloth!!!

Hi Nimloth,

I'm using a DS413j and would like to install miniDLNA server. Is there a package which I could use for my NAS?

Hi,

Just updated to 1.1.5-2. I noticed that defaults all thumbnails to embedded images in MKV/M4V, as oposite to FileName.jpg.

Dow you guys know if this is a new "feat" by design and how can be avoided?

Edit: Never mind. I've found this is by design and can't be avoided. Hope the change it or make it configurable for the next releases.

Just add the Nymloth repository to the package center and install it using the UI:

Unfortunately the miniDLNA package does not run with DSM 6 RC anymore. ("Package cannot be started"). Following error message is output with dmesg:

Code: Select all

[ 8227.523262] init: pkgctl-minidlna pre-start process (31587) terminated with status 1



Did anybody manage to run miniDLNA on DSM 6?

OK, solved now by enabling the account "minidlna". Seems Synology enhanced security and now prevent apps running in context of disabled users (this was possible with DSM 5.2)

I was actually wondering if it worked ok with DSM6. Very good to know! Thanks! Did you enable using the UI or through cli?

Through the UI.
The "minidlna" account was created during the setup process, but was disabled.

Hi,

I added http://synology.nimloth.pl/ to the "Package Center" sources, downloaded the MiniDLNA and tried to install it. Unfortunately I got an error message which says, that "MiniDLNA was not able to install".

Any Ideas?

I run a DS216play with DSM 5.2-5644 Update 5.

Many thanks, Alex
