This docker template was created based on an already available official docker image

Gerbera is a UPnP media server which allows you to stream your digital media through your home network and consume it on a variety of UPnP compatible devices.



• Browse and playback your media via your network on all kinds of devices.

• Web UI with a tree view of the database and the file system, allowing to add/remove/edit/browse your media

• Metadata extraction from MP3, OGG, AAC, M4A, FLAC, JPG (and many more!) files.

• Media thumbnail support

• Highly flexible media format transcoding via plugins / scripts

• Automatic directory rescans (timed, inotify)

• User defined server layout based on extracted metadata

• Supports last.fm scrobbing

• On the fly video thumbnail generation

• Support for external URLs (create links to internet content and serve them via UPnP to your renderer)

• Runs on Linux, BSD, Mac OS X, and more!

• Runs on x86, ARM, MIPS, and more!

• You can provide your own configuration file (config.xml), by creating an extra Path variable as: '/var/run/gerbera/config.xml' (container) and '/mnt/user/appdata/gerbera/config.xml' (host).
• The container is configured to use Host as the network type to bypass issues with broadcast accross docker bridges.

If you are going to report a bug or request something to be added/modified, please, take into consideration that I will only be able to apply changes for the work I own only. For example, if I create a docker template for an already existing docker image (not created by me), I won't be able to do more for that image than forward your report or request to the owner of the project.

If you like my work, please consider making a little donation.
Thank you very much 🙂

Thank you very muich for this.


Do you know how can I start the docker with --debug attribute? 

I'm having some crashes and adding it as extra parameters and post arguments don't work. 


Do I need to edit docker entry point.sh?


Sorry about that, but I don't know why could be happening.

Anyway, I have opened an issue on GitHub. You can follow it here.
