Reason: Rygel is available in one of the Arch repos now. It also uses a different configuration format. (Discuss in Talk:Rygel#)

Rygel is a streaming media server compatible with many DLNA/UPnP clients including the Sony PlayStation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360, smart televisions, DLNA speakers and many smartphones. Rygel will automatically transcode media to a format compatible with the client device. It can also utilise published media hierarchies from external applications like Rhythmbox and DVB Daemon through the D-Bus MediaServer specification. It is under active development and is a part of the Gnome project.

Installation

Install rygel from the gnome-extra repository.

Configuration

Rygel can be configured globally (/etc/rygel.conf) or per-user ($HOME/.config/rygel.conf). Some of the common configuration options include:

# Set it to 'false' if you want to disable transcoding support.
enable-transcoding=true

# Where video files should be saved if allow-upload is true.
# Defaults to @VIDEOS@, the standard videos folder (typically ${HOME}/Videos).
video-upload-folder=@VIDEOS@

# Where music files should be saved if allow-upload is true
# Defaults to @MUSIC@, the standard music folder (typically ${HOME}/Music).
music-upload-folder=@MUSIC@

# Where picture files should be saved if allow-upload is true
# Defaults to @PICTURES@, the standard picture folder (typically ${HOME}/Pictures).
picture-upload-folder=@PICTURES@

# Tracker's indexing options can be configured with tracker-preferences
[Tracker]
enabled=true
share-pictures=true
share-videos=true
share-music=true
strict-sharing=false
title=@REALNAME@'s media        # whatever name you choose

[MediaExport]
enabled=true
title=@REALNAME@'s media        # whatever name you choose
# List of URIs to export.
uris=@MUSIC@;@VIDEOS@;@PICTURES@
extract-metadata=true
monitor-changes=true            # watch the URIs above for new/changed media
virtual-folders=true

[Playbin]
enabled=true
title=Audio/Video playback on @HOSTNAME@        # whatever name you choose

More information on these and other configuration options can be found with man rygel.conf.
