I have a problem getting MiniDLNA to work. It's installed and I can see the music files etc but when I try to play them, they just skip from 1 to the next file down the list as if they're missing. Any idea what's wrong? Got same result when trying to play from DLNA client in my LG TV as well as from PC using Media Monkey. Have reinstalled the docker app but still same results.

Love this docker, super easy to set up. However, I agree, I should be able to disable rescan on restart. I have like a thousand photos, it takes forever. ------------------ To scan from two differ

Thanks, Raidserver, for the reply. I am away for the holiday and will not be back until Tuesday. I will look at it again then. Thanks

i wouldnt be too concerned with folders within the share having spaces, that should be fine, same deal with files

I am having the same refresh problem, but also not quite...

 

I initially set it up to share a specific server share, and that all worked OK.

 

Today I wanted to add another share, so I went ahead and add a new path, and learning the error that you cannot use the same "/media", so tried, even had the docker disappear... Then re-added it, added "/media2" pointing to the other share.  Initially seemed to accept it, but nothing was showing up (or better said, the client side was still showing the old content only, both on the device I was already using as well as trying with another device that never connected to the server before). 

 

Tried removing that second one, and just leaving the first but changing the path to the new share, and nothing, same result.

 

I now just chose to delete the docker, and I reinstalled it. On the install setup/config page, I chose the new path. Testing it out, clients still see the old folders/share. WTH??? 😳

Hi all,

 

I have installed minidlna and I encounter some problems. I have a larger movie library sorted in directories and after scanning:

 

- some of the movies do not show up at all
- some show up as empty entries with no name at all

- one directory with movies is shown completely empty

 

I assume that this happens because of failures during scanning of the media meta  data. I think that the minidlna Server does not handle all errors when try the get the metadata of a file by falling back to use the filename for display as the last option.

Is the project currently under development? Looks like the last updates are some time ago...

Does anybody have similar problems?

Today my miniDLNA stopped working.  The docker is running and it says I have the latest version.  If you scan for the miniDLNA service, it is no longer broadcasting.  I've tried a Forced Update twice to no avail.

 

Has anything changed?  I did notice that binhex updated sickchill two days ago, but not sure if they share any files.

 

Suggestions?

Hello,

I use MiniDLNA because I don't have an internet connection on the server.

It works very stably, I am very satisfied.

I only have one problem: the sorting of the files in the folders. Each music album that I want to listen to lists the tracks in alphabetical order. Can MiniDLNA sort in the order of the track numbers? All films in the folders are sorted according to the creation date. Can I change the sorting of MiniDLNA?

Thank you so much!

I'm really struggling setting the config for this. My media is here: /mnt/user/MUSIC/ and I've set it to that within unraid and checked that minidnla.conf shows that too. It's not found anything though.

What am I doing wrong? Thanks

ok first question, is your share name really 'MUSIC'? are you 100% positive on the case, its not 'Music' or 'music' right?, because linux is CaSe sensitive.

 

assuming you do have a share of MUSIC, make sure you are telling miniDLNA to look at /media NOT /mnt/user/MUSIC, as this does not exist INSIDE the container.

First, I would like to thank you. 

 

This is amazing. I'm able to play without any kind of conversion, just direct stream, dsf files (sacd) from unraid to my Denon receiver using my phone with Bubble UPnP and it's easy AF! 

Thank you.

 

My only question is, would be possible that I can do a scan on demand? 

Some command line to trigger the scan that I can put on user scripts and do from my phone?

Yes, the share is MUSIC

Sorry, I'm confused by this - where do I enter that? Is that the Host Path 2 setting? Or do I set that to /mnt/user/MUSIC as above and set some other setting to /media?

actually it looks like i preset it to /media for you, so you shouldnt need to change anything, hmm so what format is the music in?, i dont know what format minidlna supports or would mark as 'audio'.

Just standard audio fomats - MP3 and a few FLAC. They are all in subfolders within MUSIC.

 

In the log it states: "[2021/05/20 15:49:00] minidlna.c:670: error: Media directory "/mnt/user/MUSIC" not accessible [No such file or directory]"

 

So, it is a problem with the share, but I don't understand what I need to change. This is my share:

This is my docker config:

image.png.2ca3da8aa47592efec75301e20fcb24a.png

 

and this is my config file:

 

# port for HTTP (descriptions, SOAP, media transfer) trafficport=8200

# network interfaces to serve, comma delimited
#network_interface=eth0

# specify the useraccount name or uid to run asuser=nobody

# set this to the directory you want scanned.
# * if you want multiple directories, you can have multiple media_dir=lines
# * if you want to restrict a media_dir to specific content types, you
#   can prepend the types, followed by a comma, to the directory:
#   + "A" foraudio  (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)
#   + "PV" for pictures and video (eg. media_dir=PV,/home/jmaggard/digital_camera)

media_dir=A,/mnt/user/MUSIC

# set this to merge all media_dir base contents into the root container
# note: the default is no
#merge_media_dirs=no

# set this if you want to customize the name that shows up on your clients friendly_name=binhex-MiniDLNA

# set this if you would like to specify the directory where you want MiniDLNA to store its database and album art cache db_dir=/config

# each section can use a different level: off, fatal, error, warn, info, or debug
#log_level=general,artwork,database,inotify,scanner,metadata,http,ssdp,tivo=warn

# this should be a list of file names to check for when searching for album art
# note: names should be delimited with a forward slash ("/") album_art_names=Cover.jpg/cover.jpg/AlbumArtSmall.jpg/albumartsmall.jpg/AlbumArt.jpg/albumart.jpg/Album.jpg/album.jpg/Folder.jpg/folder.jpg/Thumb.jpg/thumb.jpg

# note: the default is yes inotify=yes

# set this to yes to enable support for streaming .jpg and .mp3 files to a TiVo supporting HMO enable_tivo=no

# set this to beacon to use legacy broadcast discovery method
# defauts to bonjour if avahi is available tivo_discovery=bonjour

# set this to strictly adhere to DLNA standards.

looks like you have changed the host path for the worse since your initial screenshot, it now shows this which is wrong:-

image.thumb.png.528d0b3be8852f334a713ea87b325f34.png

 

it should be as you had it, i.e.:-

image.thumb.png.87a70699cac40ffc6c0ab9d500b0ebf8.png

 

looks like the config file is also incorrect, from your post above:-

this is not correct, it should be set to:-

media_dir=/media

as per the default file.

Ah, the Host path is me messing with different options to see if anything worked - thought I'd changed it back before I took the screenshot. Apparently not.

 

For the config fille - what's all the gubbins about changing the path mean then? I thought I had just followed the instructions in the file itself.

 

OK, having changed that it is now finding files! Thanks for working through that with me.

 

The log is showing a new issue though:
image.png.0468b9513b4c43542c84c72e81529108.png

 

It still seems to be scanning and finding new files but that last line is just repeating ad infinitum.
