miniDLNA No seeing music

My miniDLNA setup doesn’t want to see any music files.


I’ve mounted a USB stick in the back slot and copied several gigs of music to it, but nothing shows.


I can see the media server on client devices, but again, no files.

“DLNA” does not appear in /var/log/messages

Whilst I’m asking, how do I restart the service? I tried


But no luck.

What should I try next?

You have to use the command “/etc/init.d/minidlna restart” for restart minidlna service.
Before it you have to permit the minidlna service via command “/etc/init.d/minidlna enable”

I installed the “ffmpeg” package on my router too and it helped me to appear the files serving via minidlna service.


Many thanks. That fixed it.
