i just installed minidlna and got it working from vlc over wireless. it didn't work at first. "systemctl status minindlna" showed that it wasn't able to identify the network interface i provided. i have no idea why(old method in minidlna?). i commented that line in config back out and made sure minidlna could read my testing media directory and it worked at that point. i used nmap -sS -sU -T4 -A -v 192.168.1.1 to see if port 8200 was open. it was.
so, if "systemctl status minidlna" or "journalctl -b" shows no problems for minidlna then maybe test with nmap from both wired and wireless and see if there is a difference. If there is, then you have network config issue. the arch wiki page for minidlna has a section about wireless in the troubleshooting section i notice.
Although I don't run minidlna over the wireless interface on the server I use, and only use the wired interface, I presume that the key here may be as you suggest that the lines in /etc/minidlna.conf near the start of the file that are relevant, which in my case are:
# port for HTTP (descriptions, SOAP, media transfer) traffic port=8200
# network interfaces to serve, comma delimited #network_interface=eth0 network_interface=eth0
would need to include the correctly specified interface(s) for the server running minidlna for the OP. I wonder what the latter line actually is for that file in the problem machine?
Good morning, Thanks to everyone for your support. Seems the problem was different, as my router started acting really weird. I just replaced it and MiniDLNA 'n stuff work flawlessly. So, always replace defective routers. :P Thanks again.
