📅 2015-Jan-23 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 📚 Archive

Raspberry Pi can be setup as a media server to simultaneously stream videos, music and pictures to multiple devices on the home wireless network. ReadyMedia (formerly known as MiniDLNA) is a simple media server that can be used to achieve this.

$ sudo apt-get install minidlna
media_dir=V,/media/usb0/videos
media_dir=A,/media/usb0/music
media_dir=P,/media/usb0/pictures
inotify=yes
$ sudo service minidlna force-reload

Tried with: ReadyMedia 1.0.24 and Raspbian 7
