 +I tried tagging the title in these places: 
 + 
 +  * Movie name 
 +  * Title tag 
 +  * Track name 
 + 
 +Tried using mmg and mkvpropedit to set the tags.  None of them worked, sadly. ​:( 
 + 
 +MP4 worked natively. 
 + 
 +==== minidlna hacking to do ==== 
 + 
 +  * Store more details in SQLite database -- number of times played, which media device is requesting, etc. 
 +  * Figure out how resume-playback works -- I'm guessing that the DLNA server makes a request for a starting point
