minidlna options

.B minidlna
is a light weight but very functional DLNA upnp-AV server allowing easy 
sharing of your media files including pictures to any capable device or
client on your local wired and wireless network. Common PC software like 
totem is a good lightweight and fast choice for Linux/BSD, more fully
featured software for Linux, Windows and MAC is xbmc, also Mediahouse 
on Android, and any media sharing capable DVR/TV etc.

.B minidlna's 
options are normally set from the global /etc/minidlna.conf file.
But there may be times when you need to temporarily alter some of these options,
you can do this by running minidlna with the following command line switches.
