GL-MT300A media server

This may be a dumb question, but I have never messed with media servers, so bear with me.

I a GL-MT300A which I would like to use to stream music and maybe videos to other devices (phone, tablet, smart tv). I currently have a USB drive attached, but may use a microSD in the future. Samba was easy to get running, and the USB drive is available on Windows. I assume that UPnP is the simples way to do the streaming, but I don’t know too much about it. I enabled the UPnP server/service in the GUI. This seems to simply be to allow UPnP traffic on the network though, is that right? I assume that you need a media server running on the GL-MT300A to stream media from it. Looking at available packages, I found uShare, which seems to be what I want, so I installed it. I’m stuck now though.

There does not seem to be a gui (default or LuCI) for uShare. What is the easiest way to set this up? Easiest way to get command line access?

Thanks for your help.

Use this one better:

root@OpenWrt:~# opkg update root@OpenWrt:~# opkg install minidlna

It seems that Ushare hasn’t been updated since a lot…
Anyway for Ushare:
It’s a dd-wrt guide but will give you some information.

Thanks for the reply. I will check out minidlna.

Hi kawayanan,

I was having issues with getting UPnP/DLNA working, but was able to get it to work, see link below.

Looking for DLNA for GL-MT300n-V2 - routers / software - GL.iNet

Hope this helps …
