The following ingredients are required for our upcoming DLNA server:
A running Banana Pi with a Debian-based Linux system
A configured network on the Banana Pi
Setting up MiniDLNA is relatively simple. As always, you need to install the required package and configure some parameters. Let's do it:
Open a shell on your Banana Pi.
We are going to place our media files like video or audio files into a directory on our external HDD. Therefore, we create a new media directory on our NTFS partition. Make sure, that the HDD is mounted:
$ mkdir /mnt/ntfs_partition/media
Place some media files into that new directory, for example, the free Big Buck Bunny movie:
$ cd /mnt/ntfs_partition/media $ wget http://mirrorblender.top-ix.org/peach/bigbuckbunny_movies...
