Beryl DLNA Server

How do I configure the “Native” DLNA server in the new Beryl. I tried installing the MiniDLNA server through the apps and it shows that a more current version is running in root. The LUCI App MiniDLNA doesn’t acknowledge the installed DLNA server…

help!!!

There is one already

I know I can enable it. Unfortunately the LUCI APP MINIDLNA doesn’t not correctly identify it or allow you to configure it. I need to know how to configure it. The default install doesn’t work for me…

You can remove the originally dlna before you install new ones.

What needs to be de-installed to use the vanilla minidlna? And can I get back to the built-in minidlna?

I don’t think there is a difference. It is just a UI for the vanilla minidlna.

Pls help me to understand.

If i use the built-in minidlna, then it only seems to be visible as a DLNA server on the LAN network. I want to use it to access media on the WAN network too. If i cannot do this with the built-in server, using the admin UI, then what do i need to do?

Adding the luci-app-minidlna doesn’t control the built-in server. How do i get to use the regular server and control it via Luci?

Thanks !

Let me check by myself and come back to you.

Were you able to find something out…?

Thanks,

I checked it is works fine.

Both UI can control the config correctly.

Both end can start or end the service. But in the luci side, seems that the enable option has problems and not updated for status. But it can be used to turn on and off the service correctly.

Thanks !

Any suggestions to address having the Minidlna server running on my Beryl and seeing it / accessing it from the WAN port network?

maybe but no guarantee…vpn in brdge mode and allowing broadcasts. dlna if i recall is local sub only

No. Unfortunately, could not get it working.
