Normally minidlna consumes so little CPU that it doesn't even show up in top (this is with a 3930K desktop under Linux Mint). However, I was showing a video on my Sony TV and simultaneously started creating a new MP4 in the minidlna directory with HandBrake (maybe videos should be copied/moved in that directory, rather than generated there), and this caused minidlna to go wrong: TV stopped streaming the video ("please check your DLNA server...") and minidlna started to use 100 per cent CPU in one of the cores. It would not restart or agree to get killed, so I could only stop this with kill -9.
The minidlna version is 1.0.21, installed through Linux Mint / Ubuntu.
