For a simple test of validity, replace the word "cloud" with "clown" and re-read the statement.

Dear lazyweb:

There is now a television in the Mouse House that supposedly supports DLNA.

What's the best DLNA server for Linux (native or cross-platform, doesn't matter)

Non open source solutions need not apply.

Try http://minidlna.sourceforge.net/ Seems rather lightweight and is very easy to set up.

I tried it on an LG bluray player only, most movies work fine. Sometimes a movie does not run, but these are sometimes old and odd avi containers which had issues on real PCs too.

Audio is odd, I can browse all my soundfiles by category, title, etc, but no music plays, ever... I do not care much since it is broadcasted via mpd and mt-daapd too, so most of the time, one of my devices plays what I want.

the most recent logitech squeezebox server can do DLNA; however its focused on audio, so mp3's will most probably work, while movies may not ;-) YMMV

oh boy. why's that microsoft linker _that_ slow? my not very fresh linux system takes about 20 seconds for linking the arangod.

the wintendo needs 5 minutes for that... RLY?

Why all of the different codecs? I can see the car and DJ purposes, but why so many others?

As I might have mentioned before, I have a friend who owns and operates a dance studio. We barter services, I get dance classes for my daughter and she gets me for editing all of the music and other audio and directing sound and lights at the recital.

When I mix the music tracks, I master it twice. There is a "recital mixdown" which needs to be as high quality as possible for the show, so I use FLAC there. But the files are huge, so I send the teachers a "rehearsal mixdown" which is in MP3 format and about one-fifth of the size.

Different tools for different jobs.

So ... in case anyone cares, the MP3 patents seem to have expired.

[ http://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/05/16/mp3_dies_nobody_noticed/ ]

Fraunhitler has not applied for any renewals and is discontinuing the licensing program. MP3 is effectively an unencumbered format now.
