DLNA on Mac: The Ultimate Guide


Well folks, many of you have read my article from Streaming from Mac OS X to a Roku Streaming Device and Stream Media from Debian to XBOX One, now it comes this guide, which is basically a different way of using DLNA on your Mac OS X (El Capitan).

Requirements

  • Mac OS X El Capitan
  • Internet access
  • Brew
  • Any DLNA capable device (Android device, Roku, Windows based computer, Playstation 4, XBOX or any SmartTV. The device needs to be on the same network as your Mac OS X computer.
  • Time, and willing to geek out!!

Step 1: Install Brew

Brew is the missing package manager for Mac OS X, it’s what aptitude is for Debian, yum for Red Hat based Linux distributions (RHEL, Fedora, CentOS, etc).It makes your life really easy if you are a developer or sysadmin. Install packages just like you would do on linux. Forget about downloading sources and compiling. This is the way to roll.

  1. Open your Terminal on your Mac OS X computer.
  2. Type the following command:
    ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
  3. Wait for Brew to be installed. If it fails for any reason, please visit this link for further information.

Step 2: Install minidlna

On linux, we have minidlna which is a daemon used to share media contents in your network using DLNA. The daemon is now called ReadyMedia. The full description is:

ReadyMedia (formerly MiniDLNA) is server software with the aim of being fully compliant with DLNA/UPnP-AV clients.

  1. Once Brew is installed, go back to your terminal and get ready.
  2. Type the following command on your terminal to install minidlna:
    brew install minidlna
  3. This will download & install minidlna on your device. If you get any errors, then please run this command and then go back to step 2:
    brew update
  4. If minidlna installed without problems, move to the next step.

Some clarifications:

  • The software is installed on the folder /usr/local/Cellar/minidlna/x.x.x (x.x.x would be the version of minidlna installed.

Step 3: Setup minidlna sharing folders

This step is about to setup all the following: device name, folder where your media is stored and that you want to share across your network.

  1. Go back to your terminal.
  2. Open a text editor to modify the configuration file. So type the following command:
    nano /usr/local/Cellar/minidlna/x.x.x/share/minidlna/minidlna.conf
  3. Now customize your settings, please make sure that you customize the media_dir with the actual path where your media is stored, below is an example that you can use :
    friendly_name=Mac DLNA Server
    media_dir=/Users/salvador_aguilar/movies/

    Please note that you can name it what ever you’d like and the media_dir NEEDS to be an existing directory/folder on your computer so be sure to put the right path.

  4. Brew does not creates the symbolic links for minidlna to work well, so we are going to have to do this:
    ln -s /usr/local/Cellar/minidlna/x.x.x/sbin/minidlnad /usr/local/bin/minidlnad

    What you are doing here is basically creating a shortcut from our recently installed minidlna on the brew directory to our /usr/local/bin directly which is where most used commands are stored. In a few words to make your life easier. Less is more, enjoy!

  5. Launch minidlna with the following command:
    minidlna

    If you have OS X firewall turned on, then you will get a prompt that you will need to approve to give permission to minidlna to serve files on your network.

  6. Voilá! Now you can turn on your TV, XBOX, Android Device or any DLNA capable device that is connected to the same network as your Mac, and you should be able to see your Mac serving media files via DLNA.

    No need for Apple TV or any other Apple branded media devices. This will make your Mac talk to EVERYONE using a STANDARD that they have refused to use or implement! Bad Apple!

Let me know if you need a guide for a specific device, XBOX, Playstation, Roku, etc. I’m always eager for new challenges!

    1. Hi Nef, on the 3.2 you run this on your command prompt:

      nano /usr/local/Cellar/minidlna/x.x.x/share/minidlna/minidlna.conf

      Please note that the x.x.x.x stands for the version that you installed on your mac, for instance the one I have on mine is 1.1.5 ( you can run this ls /usr/local/Cellar/minidlna to see which version you have installed, so on my computer I run the command like this:

      nano /usr/local/Cellar/minidlna/1.1.5/share/minidlna/minidlna.conf

      That opens the text editor, and you will see this:

      friendly_name=minidlna
      media_dir=/Users/salvador/.config/minidlna/media
      db_dir=/Users/salvador/.config/minidlna/cache
      log_dir=/Users/salvador/.config/minidlna

      friendly_name, is simply what you want your machine to be named on all of your DLNA based devices. For instance you can name yours: NEF DLNA MAC which will be saved something like this:

      friendly_name=NEF DLNA MAC
      media_dir=/Users/salvador/.config/minidlna/media
      db_dir=/Users/salvador/.config/minidlna/cache
      log_dir=/Users/salvador/.config/minidlna

      Feel free to put the name however you want it.

      media_dir is the directory where you have all the media (movies, music, etc) that you want to share. Be sure to put the full path. For instance if your mac username is macbook, and the folder you want to share is your Downloads folder, then the media_dir value will be:

      media_dir=/Users/macbook/Downloads/

      db_dir and log_dir do not need to be modified.

      Sorry for the delay on my reply I was on vacations, but now Im back on the game!

    1. Hi JC, can you refer to my reply of Nef’s comment, if that doesn’t fix it, then let me know so I can see what might be happening!

    1. Ricardo, it can be anything you want. I personally use my downloads folder. since I download them to my hard disk and after watching it they go to my external hard drive. but it totally depends on what you want really. 🙂

    1. thats probably because the brew usr/local/cellar is not part of your path on your shell.

      You can simply navigate to /usr/local/cellar/minidlna/x.x.x.x/bin/ and run your command from there.

      3. Hey man, thanks for the feedback, try to do this:

        cd /usr/local/Cellar/minidlna/1.1.5_1/sbin/
        ./minidlnad

        That should get you to the directory where the executable of minidlna is stored and the 2nd command should help you launch it.

  2. hello, a few questions:

    – in step 4 there are two commands starting with /usr in one line; they should be entered seperatly i think
    – step 5 says minidlna but that returns ‘command not found’; minidlnad is a valid command

    but after all it does not work; my LG smart-tv does not recognize my MBP. How can test wich one is the problem? My MPB of my LG-tv

    1. Hi Marten.

      Not really, the syntax for ln is simple, ln source-file destination file (you can run man ln on your mac to read the manual).

      So on this command: ln -s /usr/local/Cellar/minidlna/x.x.x/sbin/minidlnad /usr/local/bin/minidlnad

      –> /usr/local/Cellar/minidlna/x.x.x/sbin/minidlnad is where minidlnad was installed
      –> /usr/local/bin/minidlnad is where we are creating the symbolic link.

      If running the ln by itself does not work, try to do use put sudo before the entire sentence. Let me know how it goes.!

  3. Hey Sal,

    When I try to exit, I get a message at the bottom of the screen saying…

    File name to write: $onf

    But I am not sure what to do after this point. The commands that it gives at the bottom are mankind much sense to a non coder, and I get stuck here.

    Also, are steps 3.4 and on preformed in the terminal outside of the .conf command we used to configure friendly_name?

  4. I’m still getting stuck on step 4, well or 5. I’m just not sure if anything is happening on step 4. Here is what I get:

    Taylors-MacBook-Pro:~ taylorsanford$ ln -s /usr/local/Cellar/minidlna/1.1.5_1/sbin/minidlnad /usr/local/bin/minidlnad
    ln: /usr/local/bin/minidlnad: File exists
    Taylors-MacBook-Pro:~ taylorsanford$ minidlna
    -bash: minidlna: command not found

    And then just FYI, when I run “find” this is what I get:

    Taylors-MacBook-Pro:~ taylorsanford$ sudo find / -name minidlnad
    Password:
    find: /dev/fd/taylorsanford: No such file or directory
    find: /dev/fd/taylorsanford: No such file or directory
    /usr/local/bin/minidlnad
    /usr/local/Cellar/minidlna/1.1.5_1/sbin/minidlnad
    /usr/local/sbin/minidlnad

    And then I tried what you suggested to others on Aug 8, and nothing happens it just moves to the next command (maybe that’s what it’s supposed to do, I’m not a developer so I’m not sure) but regardless, it doesn’t actually launch anything.

    Taylors-MacBook-Pro:~ taylorsanford$ cd /usr/local/Cellar/minidlna/1.1.5_1/sbin/
    Taylors-MacBook-Pro:sbin taylorsanford$ ./minidlnad

    Any help is appreciated.

    1. Hi. I’ve got the same issue. I’ve turned firewall off and that seems to make no difference. Messages are generated when a client is searching for the server. I’m on OSX10.11.6 and minidlna 1.2.0. Any ideas would be great. Thanks.

  6. Hi! Thanks for doing this! Everything went well until Step 5. I get the following message: “-bash: minidlna: command not found”. As others have mentioned, when I try to run minidlnad instead, it appears to be running something that ends quickly and then pops up a new normal command line without ever outputting information or anything to let me know anything has happened. I have OS X firewall turned on, as you mentioned, but nothing pops up asking for permission.

    1. This happens when you do not have the brew root as part of your $PATH variable. A quick hack is this.

      1. Go to your terminal and type: cd /usr/local/Cellar/minidlna then go into the directory listed there, note that it will vary depending on the version. Once you are there go to the bin or sbin directory. You will see that minidlnad is there. So simply create a symbolic link of this executabable on your /usr/bin folder. Something like this would work:

        ln -s minidlna /usr/bin/minidlna or ln -s minidlnad /usr/bin/minidlnad

  10. How do I know when Brew will be installed? How long does it take? I got the following message after I hit return after I tried installing Brew. What do I do now? Is it working or do I have to start over and not hit return? Or is there a password I should be entering? Thanks for your help!!!

    Press RETURN to continue or any other key to abort

  11. Why can’t TV just detect profoundly used NFS or samba shares? Why to blame the pathetic Apple?

    1. Well that would make sense and it would be easier, but the reality is different. TVs nowadays only support DLNA, so unless you want to buy an Apple TV device, using things like Plex & minidlna would be your choice for now.

  12. Thanks for all your hard work. I’m afraid I can’t get past step 2. Everything installed without error messages but I am unable to even access any of these directories to verify that the installation has taken place. Is there a specific directory under which I can verify that all this has in fact been created? Finder search using any of the basic key terms in the list of files and folders yields nothing. When I try to pull up the config file in Terminal to customize for my media directory, I get this: “GNU nano 2.0.6 File: …minidlna/x.x.x/share/minidlna/minidlna.conf” and it contains no data. I am able to paste in your example modified for my directory name but am unable to determine the Terminal command to save the file with that info. When I paste the command “ln -s /usr/local/Cellar/minidlna/x.x.x/sbin/minidlnad /usr/local/bin/minidlnad” in 3.4 into Terminal, I get “File exists”. However, when I input the Launch minidlna command, “minidlna“ in 3.5, I get “-bash: minidlna: command not found”. I generally find that working in Terminal, I feel “in the dark” and that it’s basically hit or miss. What am I missing? Thanks
