I am quite new to both, SAMBA and DLNA, so I don't know if my attempt makes sense at all.
But what I try to achieve is the following: I have a client, that supports DLNA and a server that is a computer running Debian (Wheezy). I would like to access files released on the server (using SAMBA) with the client.
This way I could control which files in my home directory should be shared via DLNA and which should stay private.
Therefore I thought of a solution where I put something like
media_dir= # some place whith all samba shares
I think in this tutorial (http://zeldor.biz/2012/01/dlna-minidlna-on-debian/) the author tries to do something similar.
Is this possible?
