to be honest: Great uPnP-server! I got it installed without any problems under ubuntu server 11.04/beta and it runs very fine without any problems.
But I would really like to have a simple status report, perhaps something like "minidlna -v" as it is with samba or ftpwho. I have a neighbor who uses my WLAN-acces for this minidlna - and he's very happy, too.
On several occasions I have to shutdown the server and am not able to have a look who's logged in.
So: Is there a possibility to get a status report with:
- logged users (at least as simple count)
- # of shared movies, pictures and music
- by user "opened" files (i.e if a user currently watches a movie).
Would be a great addition.
I have the same problem: I need to find out if minidlna is serving a client or somebody browes its directories and the like. If there is no such feature is there maybe some workaround ?
I understand how this would be useful. One potential option is using netstat to view open connections…
$ sudo netstat -tupe | grep minidlna
tcp 0 110048 craig-server.local:8200 192.168.72.52:35710 ESTABLISHED root 681826 20593/minidlna
tcp 0 198376 craig-server.local:8200 192.168.72.216:50834 ESTABLISHED root 680107 20447/minidlna
I grabbed the above while my wife was watching a video on the TV, and I had a film running on my phone.
For some reason streaming music did not show up an open socket when I tried it, but this may be because the app downloads quickly, caches and closes the socket.
thank you so much for this hint, the command works perfectly for my purposes. At least with my receiver the connection for music is also shown. I will include this now in my procedure for suspend to RAM.
Glad I could help :-)
I was using an app on my phone. I'm not certain on its behaviour, but my guess is that it downloads the whole song to local cache, unlike a TV which would stream.
