minidlna is running (latest version) needed to upgrade the sqlite3 library.
There is only one thing which is that the inotify calls do not work, inotify is used to notice changes in filesystems and used to automatically add or delete files from the database. Thats a pity, don't know yet if I can resolve that without a kernel recompile (intofy was enabled in the kernel config file ...mmm whats wrong here.
If this can not be solved then it means that you need to restart the server and rebuild the media database if you have added any files to the directories it scans and you want those to show up on your client. That can be a little time and cpu consuming if you have many files.
The minidlna server is recognized by windows 7 and my TV as DLNA server and streams ok so far (pictures, video and music tested but not all file types yet tested)
I'd like to get this working. Have you created an ipkg for this? The latest I see is from 04/2009. If you haven't, i'd suggest making an ipkg and posting it to the http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optwa ... oss/stable
, I'm sure many people would appreciate this as well.
I'm curious of the difference between this and uShare. Have you tried uShare? I've found it to be a bit of a resource and memory hog, but still much better than the built in PCast server. Unfortunately it's really basic and apparently not maintained any more. Have to create a cron job to refresh the shares on uShare as well. Any info you have would be appreciated.
I did not do much more work on it yet other then testing it with streaming jpg's, mp3 and mpg files. That worked ok on my client in windows 7 and on my client in a Philips LCD TV.
PS I tried that ipkg version you are referring to before compiling it myself. But that one didn't work on my spd8020. The binary as compiled by me using the source code is clearly different from that ipkg version, its somewhat bigger and...it works.
I have no intention to make an ipkg of it as I do not know how to do that and it requires other packages as well and some sym links to get it working. But probably I will include it in my next firmware release
I could post the compiled binary.
