I can view files from my raspberry pi on my Samsung galaxy S3, but when I try to open/play them (videos, music or pictures), I get the error message: "Error downloading image from server". Can anyone help me to understand why this is happening? If more information is needed please let me know. I have spent hours trying to solve this but nothing I tried has worked.
Here is the log file /var/log/minidlna/log:

and here is my configuration file /etc/minidlna.conf:
# This is the configuration file for the MiniDLNA daemon, a DLNA/UPnP-AV media
# On Debian, you can also refer to the minidlna.conf(5) man page for
# documentation about this file.
# Path to the directory you want scanned for media files.
# This option can be specified more than once if you want multiple directories
# If you want to restrict a media_dir to a specific content type, you can
# prepend the directory name with a letter representing the type (A, P or V),
# followed by a comma, as so:
# * "A" for audio (eg. media_dir=A,/var/lib/minidlna/music)
# * "P" for pictures (eg. media_dir=P,/var/lib/minidlna/pictures)
# * "V" for video (eg. media_dir=V,/var/lib/minidlna/videos)
# WARNING: After changing this option, you need to rebuild the database. Either
# run minidlna with the '-R' option, or delete the 'files.db' file
# from the db_dir directory (see below).
# On Debian, you can run, as root, 'service minidlna force-reload' instead.
# Path to the directory that should hold the database and album art cache.
# Path to the directory that should hold the log file.
# Minimum level of importance of messages to be logged.
# Must be one of "off", "fatal", "error", "warn", "info" or "debug".
# "off" turns of logging entirely, "fatal" is the highest level of importance
# and "debug" the lowest.
# Use a different container as the root of the directory tree presented to
# clients. The possible values are:
# * "." - standard container
# * "B" - "Browse Directory"
# * "M" - "Music"
# * "P" - "Pictures"
# * "V" - "Video"
# if you specify "B" and client device is audio-only then "Music/Folders" will be used as root
# Network interface(s) to bind to (e.g. eth0), comma delimited.
# IPv4 address to listen on (e.g. 192.0.2.1).
# Port number for HTTP traffic (descriptions, SOAP, media transfer).
