    minidlna vs ushare upnp servers
    This minidlna is better than ushare.
    it does automatic folder refreshing without interrupting the upnp serving of currently playing video.

    with ushare, placing a file in the shared folder to become visible to the media player, you have to do a reload. then my dsm 320 stops playing the stream and i cant just restart but have to back out of the directory to replay the video.

    for minidlna, just extract to a home folder.
    adjust the conf file to suite your system
    run it like this

    ./minidlna [-d] [-f config_file]
    [-a listening_ip] [-p port]
    [-s serial] [-m model_number]
    [-t notify_interval] [-P pid_filename]
    [-w url] [-R] [-V] [-h]

    Notify interval is in seconds. Default is 895 seconds.
    Default pid file is /var/run/
    With -d minidlna will run in debug mode (not daemonize).
    -w sets the presentation url. Default is http address on port 80
    -h displays this text
    -R forces a full rescan
    -V print the version number

    Thanks for posting that. uShare has been broken for me of since just before the release of 9.10

    This works and is actually maintained unlike ushare.

    I can also play divx files directly on the dsm 320 with minidlna.
    ushare can not do this.
