It is a DLNA server that allows you to share the folders with multimedia contents of your Linux distribution with the television or another device like PlayStation or Xbox.
What is a DLNA server?
This technology allows several devices to communicate so that they can share contents with one another directly. Each day there are more televisions, video game consoles and mobiles that include this technology. MiniDLNA allows to convert a computer into a server that will provide the device that you are going to play on with contents.
