DLNA media server

Post by Max_tonetto »

Hi everyone!
First of all thank you very much for this amazing distro, it's really fantastic!

A question probably simply for the majority of you:
I'm trying to use my RB pi 1 model b to do a lot of things, one of which is dlna media server. In particular I have a relatively old blu-ray reader with dlna function that doesn't allow to select subtitles with the same name of the video or embedded into it (I don't remember if it doesn't allow to select also the audio but it is not a priority in this moment). Of course the blu-ray has this function when using an usb, so I think is a problem of the dlna software (I know that dlna doesn't support subtitles but modern software when reading video files avoid this problem with some script I think)

On my laptop I've tried universal media server that creates a transcode folder in which shows different files for each audio and subtitle combination possible, so it seems to resolve my problem. However a part from this feature it's not a software that I particularly like (simply I was not able to find an exhaustive guide online), so I was wondering if there is some package that is able to do something similar (jellyfin? maybe serviio? but of course I would prefer one of the DietPi-Software!)

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

jellyfin should be available on dietpi-software catalouge.
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

I don't know why it doesn't show in mine

Maybe is related to the RP pi version I've got?

You could check why it is probably hidden

Code: Select all

dietpi-software list | grep jell
In case of Jellyfin, it is disabled for ARMv6 RPi models (RPi 1 and Zero), as there are simply no binaries provided for this architecture. And it isn't possible since the underlying .NET runtime does not support ARMv6: https://github.com/dotnet/runtime/issues/7764

Can't tell you as I'm not using any DLNA server software.

Ok, thank you very much for the rapid responses.

Do you know in which RB pi is supported jellyfin? the model 2, 3 and 4 should be ok while th zero instead shouldn't, right?

Indeed Raspberry Pi 1 and Zero (ARMv6 CPU) are not supported by Jellyfin, more precisely not supported by the underlying .NET core: https://github.com/jellyfin/jellyfin/issues/5011
