minidlna is now packaged

So in my previous entry I talked about streaming audio media to my new tablet. Despite it working for others I couldn't get MPDroid to stream to my tablet from my MPD server successfully.

After looking around for alternatives I used MediaTomb to stream my content to the Android "2player" application. After a while I switched from MediaTomb to minidlna instead - that application being built from source.

To save myself effort, and be useful, I've packaged that for Squeeze here :

There's a configuration file in /etc/minidlna and a trivial init-script. Works for me.

In more fun news yesterday I endured and epic 8 hour bus trip and travelled from Edinburgh to Loch Ness.

Why go to Loch Ness? Well I fancied a swim, and wanted to capture shots of hairy cows. In addition to that I saw several interesting birds and a lot of Scottish Scenery.

All in all a good day out.
