Replace uShare with MiniDNLA

Postby moulari » Wed Sep 29, 2010 4:23 am

I would suggest to replace the currently used uShare with MiniDNLA. I have MiniDNLA running on a ubuntu box and it works flawlesly and has some great features that make it better than uShare namely:

*automatic folder refreshing
*works perfect with PS3
*is maintained

What you think?

Oh I'm liking the sound of this...

Folder monitoring would be a HUGE plus. I didn't see if photo/video thumbnails is a feature but that would be really nice as well...although I'm not entirely sure if that is a lack of functionality on the PS3 or uShare via DLNA (if the content is on the PS3's HDD it shows thumbnails just fine).

my experience with DLNA servers on low CPU devices is that miniDLNA is significantly better than other options
