    • DLNa Servers not viewing contents

      Hi, all

      I install OMV - now the version is 3.0.88.
      I attempt to use a DLNA server, to use with a smartTV. I installed miniDLNa and Plex to attempt it.

      I have two shared folders, as one Music (for the audio) and other named Video (for the video).
      But the contents are not displaying by both servers. NO media found!

      Egual, i attempt to viewing with totem into my gnome session, but without results!

      Below, i put screenshot of my config (french):

    • It is either a permissions issue with the media folders or you could have one bad media file that minidlna fails on causing the indexing to fail.

    • A permission problem was just one of the options I presented. You have ACLs set everywhere (yuck) and odd permissions (should still be ok for minidlna though) but I don't see any media files in those listings. Personally, I would install the resetperms plugin and reset all permissions of your shared folders and clear ACLs. Also post the output of groups minidlna and the permissions of some media files if you don't want to use the reset.

      1. $ groups minidlna

    • try changing MiniDLNA port to 8201 and Root Container to browse.
      change name too: Do not use "space or ":", eg: MiniOMV or VideoDLNA
