I’ve been working on installing Minidlna and run into a couple issues.
It shows files on my Drobo, but misses many of them. I have roughly 600 files and 10 directories at /mnt/DroboFS/Shares/Video but it seems to see only about the first 100 or so. Does it search subdirectories without any special input? I have tried stopping the service and deleting the database in order to restart it and force a rescan with only minimal improvement (+10 files). Does anyone have ideas on what else I could try?
I was using Fuppes, then tried Mediatomb and they both listed Folders on top of the directory listing (I realize not everyone agrees but it’s hierarchy)
but minidlna seems to mix the folders in with the files. BTW, same device- a WDTVLive player, different results.) Can anything be done?
Lastly when I define a Video directory using “media_dir=V,/mnt/DroboFS/Shares/Video” it still lists Music, Pictures and Video. Odd since when pointed to the same directory “Video” in the other two apps it only saw Video folder and the subdirectories like “Movies” and “TV Shows” underneath. Any ideas?
I have some questions. I installed the latest version of miniDLNA and created a test directory. I modified the configuration file and there was no way. I can see the DLNA server from within XBMC but no files appear.
I leave here the settings and log files, if you can help?:
[quote]# port for HTTP (descriptions, SOAP, media transfer) traffic
network interface to bind to (this is the only interface that will serve files)
set this to the directory you want scanned.
* if have multiple directories, you can have multiple media_dir= lines
* if you want to restrict a media_dir to a specific content type, you
can prepend the type, followed by a comma, to the directory:
+ “A” for audio (eg. media_dir=A,/home/jmaggard/Music)
+ “V” for video (eg. media_dir=V,/home/jmaggard/Videos)
+ “P” for images (eg. media_dir=P,/home/jmaggard/Pictures)
set this if you want to customize the name that shows up on your clients
set this if you would like to specify the directory where you want MiniDLNA to store its database and album art cache
