minidlnad - MiniDLNA DLNA/UPnP-AV Server

minidlnad options

minidlna is a lightweight but very functional DLNA/UPnP-AV server allowing easy sharing of your media files including pictures to any capable device or client on your local wired and wireless network. Common PC software like totem is a good lightweight and fast choice for Linux/BSD; more fully featured software for Linux, Windows and MAC is XBMC, also Mediahouse on Android, and any media sharing capable DVR/TV etc.

minidlna's options are normally set from the global /etc/minidlna.conf file.
But there may be times when you need to temporarily alter some of these options,
you can do this by running minidlna with the following command line switches.
-R Rescan
This forces minidlna to rescan all of the media_dir directories.
-f config_file
Run minidlna with a different configuration file than the global default.
-p port
Allows to run minidlna on a different port.
-w presentation_url
Change the default presentation url address.
-d debug
minidlna will run in the foreground with debug output.
-P pid_filename
Specify a location for the PID file.
-m model
Force minidlna to report a specific model number.
-s serial
Force minidlna to report a specific serial number.
-t notify_interval
Change the notify interval, in seconds. Defaults to 895 seconds.
-h help
Show basic switch options for running minidlna.
-V Version
Shows the program version number and exits.

This man page corresponds to minidlna version 1.1.0
