Currently the Minidlna service forces the daemon to run as user Nobody, ignoring the user informed in the configuration file /etc/minidlna.conf. This line specifying the user should be removed from the service file in order to provide the correct functionality.

Also, the start command should include the -R option, to rescan the library before each start, as it may have been modified while the service was not running and will not be updated, because the iNotify service only report changes in the directory while the daemon is still running.
This task depends upon

user removed from .service, but I did not add -R option. I think library can be really huge to rescan it on each start. Anyway if someone needs it he can copy .service into /etc/systemd/ and modify it.
