GMediaServer - A UPnP compatible media server


gmediaserver [OPTIONS]... DIRECTORIES...


Run the UPnP compatible media server. The directories arguments specify where audio files
are located.

GMediaServer is a UPnP music media server. It implements the server component that
provides UPnP media devices with information on available audio files. GMediaServer uses
the built-in http server of libupnp to stream the audio files to clients.

When the main process receives the USR1 signal, all directories specified on the command
line will be rescanned. This functionality is currently quite crude in that all files are
rescanned even if they were not changed.


This program follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two
dashes (`-').

Set display name for media server.

Do not scan files for tags.

Specify character set used in file names. If the environment variable
`G_BROKEN_FILENAMES' (1) is set, this is if possible identified automaticly from
the current locale (usually the environment variable `LC_CTYPE' affects this).
Otherwise UTF-8 is assumed. Use this option to specify character set manually.

Run `iconv --list' for a list of accepted character encoding names.

Specify character set used in the data passed to the control point (the player
device). If this option is not specified, no translation will occur.

Run `iconv --list' for a list of accepted character encoding set names.

Specify character set used in messages printed to standard out and to the log file
(if applicable). If this option is not specified, it is if possible identified
automaticly from the current locale.

-v, --verbose[=LEVEL]
Set verbosity level (0-4).

Write pid to FILE when up and running.

-i, --interface=NAME
Listen on a specific interface. NAME can be either an IP address (IPv4) or the name
of a network device.

-p, --port=PORT
Listen on a specific port.

-o, --output=LOGFILE
File for logging.

-b, --background
Go to background (detach).

Do not prepend timestamp to log entries. See strftime(3) for description of the
timestamp format.

Prepend timestamp with optional time format.

Specify which profile to use. Profiles control what settings are enabled for a
certain control point (the player device). See PROFILES below for a list of valid
values for --profile. The default is "generic".

Set UPnP advertisement expire time. This may be necessary for some devices. The
default is 100 seconds.

Specify which types of files are accepted by the control point. The argument is a
comma separated list of accepted types. File types are identified by contents and
not file name (i.e. the extension). See FILE TYPES below for a list of valid types
for --file-types. The default is "mp3,wma,m3u,pls".

--help Display this help and exit.

Output version information and exit.


The following values are valid for --profile:

mp101 Netgear MP101. Implies --file-types=mp3,wma,m3u,pls.

dms1 Omnify DMS1. Implies --expire-time=600 --file-types=mp3,wma,m3u,pls.

All other devices. Implies no custom settings.


The following types can be specified for --file-types:

mp3 The regular MP3 files, or to be more specific `MPEG ADTS, layer III, v1'. At the
moment this does also include MP3 files beginning with an ID3 tag.

wma `Windows Media Audio' data encapsulated in Microsoft ASF files.

wav Wave sound data encapsulated in RIFF files.

m4a `iTunes AAC-LC' data encapsulated in an ISO Media MPEG v4 system file.

ogg Vorbis audio data encapsulated in an Ogg file.

pls A playlist format used by Winamp and other programs.

m3u Simple and extended M3U playlists used by Winamp and other programs. Extended M3U
playlists start with `#EXTM3U'.

Unidentified files (all other). Normally these files are not served, but when
unknown is included in the file types list they will be.
