I am trying to stream internet radio using minidlna Version: 1.0.21+dfsg-1ubuntu1
installed on ubuntu server 12.04.
I crated a folder with playlists. The minidlna server reads the playlists but connected clients see empty folders. When I use the same playlists with the same clients with TwonlyMedia server of a friend, they work fine.

Log file output:

    From what I understand, minidlna currently only serves static files.

    Frauenhofer enabled this additional behaviour from the earliest days of Twonky (I used Twonky at 1st release, back in 2003), but that does not mean it should exist in any other DLNA servers.
    I think it would be a nice addition, but essentially this is a feature request.

    If this feature is essential to you, you could always buy the Twonky Server.
