Not Seeing Files

    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
    minidlna.c:990: warn: HTTP listening on port 8200
    minissdp.c:351: debug: Sending SSDP notifies
    inotify.c:153: debug: Add watch to /opt
    minidlna.c:1200: debug: HTTP connection from
    upnphttp.c:948: debug: HTTP REQUEST: GET /rootDesc.xml HTTP/1.1
    Content-Length: 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.
