Stream to Freecom MusicPal with gmediaserver

Freecom MusicPal needs a UPnP media server. First I tried mediatomb; got a elaborate error message : "main: upnp error -203"
Then Fuppes in content quite the same sort of error: fuppes failed to bind socked.

Then installed GMediaserver;error message gmediaserver: missing directory argument
when typing:
gmediaserver content_directory './mp3'


then typed in terminal:
gmediaserver -v '/home/paul/mp3'


Feedback:
gmediaserver process id 1989 starting
UPnP MediaServer listening on 192.168.1.10:49152
Sending UPnP advertisement for device (expire time 100 seconds)...
Listening for control point connections...

Shutting down...

and it stopped
with this command it didn't stop:
gmediaserver content_directory './mp3'

In
/etc/default/gmediaserver
you can read:
# gmediaserver control (yes means start daemon).
GMEDIASERVERRUN=no

#GMEDIASERVERARGS="--profile=mp101 -ieth0"

GMEDIASERVERDIR="/usr/share/sounds"


Probably the last line has to be changed to your streaming folder:

GMEDIASERVERDIR="/home/paul/mp3"

After changing this terminal typing:
gmediaserver './mp3'


no fault messages anymore. But the serving stopped after each song or sometimes after a few minutes. Then found this terminal command

gmediaserver --friendly-name=gmediaserver -i eth0 -v4 ~/mp3

Feedback, songlist and:
