After you've installed basic optware to the router using e.g. the Raas image directly or indirectly using my tutorial (http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=23684)DLNA could be the next step.

A router with 128MB RAM (RT-N16, WL-500gP or WL-500W with RAM upgrade) is recommended if you plan to run many other programs as well.

If you don't know what DLNA is just check the Wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Living_Network_Alliance).

The basic idea is that media servers (like the router) provide media to media player (like your TV, media player etc.) controlled by controller (like your PDA, mobile etc.)
There are many different options, the most popular being: mediatomb, minidlna and twonky.
You can install all, and disable what you don't like.

mediatomb (special thanks to rathalian and ignatz)
Original thread (http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=13963)

Just copy-paste as such:

cd /opt/share/file; [ ! -f magic.old ] && mv magic magic.old
ipkg update; ipkg install readline mediatomb
mkdir -p /opt/etc/mediatomb
mkdir -p /usr/local/root/.mediatomb
flashfs save && flashfs commit && flashfs enable
sed -i 's/MT_USER="root"/MT_USER="admin"/' /opt/etc/mediatomb.conf
sed -i 's/MT_ENABLE=false/MT_ENABLE=true/' /opt/etc/default/mediatomb
cd /opt/share/mediatomb
cat sqlite3.sql | sqlite3 mediatomb.db
mv mediatomb.db /opt/etc/mediatomb/
/opt/etc/init.d/S90mediatomb start
/bin/ps | grep mediatomb


MediaTomb web interface: http://192.168.1.1:50500/

minidlna (special thanks to shantanugoel)
Original thread (http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=25942)

If you prefer not to compile it, fetch my compiled version and extract it on the router. 8426.

Copy-paste the following script and it will do everything (build also if you did not download the above binary version, however it can take half an hour in case of slow router):

It has a rather slow web interface during media scan, but it works:
http://192.168.1.1:9000

It's possible to start and run all 3 at the same time, however most probably you don't need to and it can also use quite some memory and CPU time (even with powerful routers like the RT-N16 with 128MB RAM).
After tried what works for you, you can disable automatic start by renaming the /opt/etc/init.d/S90... script to DS90... (as only services starting with S... started). stop/start to the scripts work for manual stop/start.

Unfortunately I cannot answer which works for you as it depends on your player and your preferences.

Enjoy!

What is the typo?
perhaps as mod I'm able to fix it:)

slow twonky web interface? :s
perhaps it is while it's still scanning for media...
apart from that it is smooth for me :)

Intall DLNA -> Install DLNA

Thank you if you can fix it.

Maybe you're right, it was still scanning media.

Btw. when I start twonkymedia there is a zombie left, e.g.:

17265 ? Z 0:00 \_ [mediafusion-int] <defunct>
Search in the net shows that it's considered normal for Linux version (I don't think so); does it happen also when you start it? Is there any way to prevent it?

fixed:)

I have that too... but since it does not use any cpu time (or nearly none) over hours of time it doesn't affect the performance significantly :)

Mod: please don't include the entire how-to as a quote...

Thak you very well for these scripts :-)

I have TV Samsung and this brand have many problems with some Media Servers.

I tried install MediaTomb. It works great, but I dont see it on my Samsung TV.

Then I tried MiniDLNA. I see it on TV, but not content of my library.
In log I see:

inotify.c:189: warn: WARNING: Could not read inotify max_user_watches! Hopefully it is enough to cover 0 current directories plus any new ones added.

What is wrong?

Thank you.

Are you sure that your media files are located in the directory that's indicated in the minidlna config file, /opt/etc/minidlna.conf parameter media_dir?

minidlna works with Samsung TV very well.

Btw, can you please avoid quoting the entire tutorial in your post (editing even after the post is possible)?

I tried use all combination of path.
After command DF I see this for disk with my movies
/dev/discs/disc0/part3 /tmp/mnt/disc0_3
I used first and second form too. I used /tmp/harddisk

For all free types of writing location command CD work.

I use default SAMBA. In one forum I red something about this error and SAMBA 3. Which SAMBA use you?

Thank you.

I use Samba3 but probably that's not the issue here.

df -h command should show /mnt for the "Mounted on" part (this is the case if you installed optware based on my tutorial or using the tutorial from Raas; /tmp/harddisk is not used by me).
What it shows currently for you is something like it would be auto mounted and not via using /etc/fstab (cat /etc/fstab).

Anyhow, as the files are there, you should find them (e.g. cd / && find -name *.avi or whatever media files you store there) and set the correct directory in /opt/etc/minidlna.conf.

You can see what's currently configured with the following command:
cat /opt/etc/minidlna.conf | grep media_dir

Hi Ecaddict, could you please help me in configuring Twonky to let play Mkv files? On my samsung television when i try to open this kind of file it says "unsupported format"!
Thank you for all your nice tutorials

ecaddict
26-11-2011, 19:07
Playing mkv minidlna is the best option (I know for sure that it works with Samsung TV). Also meditomb has some issues with it due to e.g. missing <map from="mkv" to="video/mpeg"/> from /opt/etc/mediatomb/config.xml.

I don't know what's wrong with Twonky.

I installed the minidlna from the https://github.com/ and I also tried to compile minidlna (Version 1.0.22) for asus wl-500gp router and tried it with Samsung UE40D7000 TV. However, for any media (photo, video, music) I always get the message that the media format is not supported. Would you know how to fix it?

duvik
07-07-2012, 00:32
The reason could be the auto mounted disk and not via using /etc/fstab. I did not paid attention to that because everything else was working well. I can even see thumbnails of some pictures but they cannot be opened - the message that media format not supported appears.
How can I disable the automounting function of the router?
Thank you!

Hello,

I got the same error as kolp one entry above.
My problem is, I see the DLNA Server (my asus router) in the LG TV under Smart Share, but when i click on it I only see Standard Audio/Video/Music Folder which are all empty and which are not on my Router FS...
I tried all possible values for the parameter (the one who is shown in df -h, the one shown in /etc/fstab) but without success... Can someone help me?
Did someone fixed this issue? I badly need this!
Thnx

I recently had to reinstall Optware on my Asus RT-N16 due to an error that happened on my harddrive. After reinstalling Optware, using ecaddict guide for Optware the simple way, I found out that the Twonkyserver 7 guide on the link below is no longer working. I have been in touch with Twonky and they say that they shut down the twonkyforum a few years ago and have no backup of this information.

@wpte If I am not mistaken, I believe you wrote the guide for Twonkyserver 7. You would not happen to still have the guide somewhere?

http://www.twonkyforum.com/mediawiki...ters_-_Oleg_FW

I have found out how to install Twonkymedia 6 and have done that succesfully. However, Twonkymedia 6 does not support mkv-files. All of my movie files are mkv-files with embedded subtitles, which is the only way to get subtitles to work on my LG TV. I am far from an expert on all of this and hope you have time to help me with the guide for Twonkyserver 7.

Best regards
Anders
