Advanced Settings

Click on the Show Advanced button at the top right of the settings area to toggle display of advanced settings. Be careful when adjusting or using advanced settings.

Warning!: Even more so than with most other "Advanced" settings, you should be very careful about altering settings here. You should do so only if instructed to do so or if you know specifically why you're making a change and exactly what the appropriate value for the setting is.

DLNA client preferences

Client-specific configuration settings for the DLNA server. These should generally not be altered.

Allow playback via DLNA to report timeline activity. This means that the Plex Media Server will track the current progress through the item. This should typically be enabled.

DLNA default protocol info

The protocol information string used in the GetProtocolInfo responses used by the DLNA server. This should typically not be altered.

DLNA media renderer discovery interval

The number of seconds between DLNA media renderer discovery requests.

DLNA server announcement lease time

Set the duration in seconds of the DLNA server SSDP announcement least time. The default value of 1800 is typically appropriate.
