I have a single image file (test.jpg) in /opt/ but I am unable to see it.
When I start up MiniDLNA I see:
Reading configuration from file /etc/minidlna.conf
minidlna.c:884: warn: Starting MiniDLNA version 1.0.25 .
minidlna.c:972: info: Enabled interface 192.168.225.1/255.255.255.0

Is there a config option I'm not setting or something…?
It's difficult to tell much from what you've posted.
1) is that debug output, or just log file?
2) Is there a files.db database in /var/cache/minidlna/ or /tmp/ ?
3) Is the file readable by the minidlna process (permissions issue?)
4) How are you trying to view the file?
1. It's debug output, i think… I ran minidlna with the -d flag
2. there is the .db file
3. file is readable
4. viewing the file in windows media player.
Also I just found a simple video file and I am able to view it, but not able to play it… I'm going to try with some other files, I'll update later
I've tested all the different formats that I can find, I am able to view each file, but am not able to open/play it. I though maybe it was an issue with one of the dependency libs, but no lib should impact every file type… At least to my knowledge
When I run in debug mode, I can see messages regarding scanning the media items, and how they have been interpreted.
Can you try running the following:
sudo sqlite3 /var/cache/minidlna/files.db select * from details
This will show what info minidlna has added to the database regarding the media items.
