Could i replace or add custom minidlna fork ?

Post by foxyboy »

Just wondering if this would be a flier or not.

I would like to investgate if i could use a different minidlna
fork to create a new plugin to the one provided.
https://github.com/timehlers/minidlna

The reason i would like to do this is to see if i could attach a DVB-T usb tuner to my gargoyle router.

The minidlna fork above can create urls from a tvheadend installation and advertise them as a dlna source.

The kernel is 4.14 which has lots of tuner support builtin so many cheap dvb-t options out there like xboxone tuner.

Would this possible or am i asking for trouble ?

I’d be reluctant to switch to an unofficial repository.

The required changes look minimal. It would be better to apply these as a patch to the original if possible.

Also as long as it didn’t increase the size of the firmware too much, it should be ok to include.

Thanks Lantis,

When you say patch do you mean to compile the minidlna fork independently and swap it over any compiled modules over existing minidlna installed ?

Like how we've applied patches here:

The 020-ignore-directory.patch was added by me in 2015 to extend the functionality of the base minidlna. I would do the same for this.
