PS3 Media Servver
It works even I use my phone to tether data (I don't need to turn on wifi on my phone).
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install minidlna sudo nano /etc/minidlna.conf # the default location of media files is on /var/lib/minidlna # rebuild the database. See the comments in <etc/minidlna.conf> sudo service minidlna force-reload sudo service minidlna start sudo update-rc.d minidlna defaults # ask minidlna to start up automatically upon boot.
Too bad is when I played certain videos the program crashed. The /var/log/syslog showed kernel: [96495.690373] minidlna: segfault at 0 ip 00007f4af2de9964 sp 00007fffa43014f8 error 4 in libc-2.15.so[7f4af2d54000+1b4000]. Also the minidlna process becomes 2 instead of 1 after the crash.
Too bad the Kodi's upnp function is not stable. Kodi server disappeared so the client cannot find it.
