Bose SoundTouch and Mini DLNA

Install Mini DLNA

apt-get install minidlna

Copy the Music over to the staging folder. I have my MP3 files on an external hard disk so I’ll copy them over link this

tar -c /mnt/Music -cvf - . | tar -C /var/lib/minidlna -xf -

Set the file ownership

chown -R minidlna:minidlna /var/lib/minidlna /var/cache/minidlna

Sometimes you need to delete the database from /var/cache/minidlna/files.db and restart the service

service minidlna stop
rm /var/cache/minidlna/files.db
service minidlna start
