The Configuration Panel

Starting the digiKam configuration panel (SettingsConfigure digiKam...), you will find a new option for the digiKam mediaserver. You actually have two simple options: if you want to start the mediaserver automatically once you start digiKam and if so, if you want to start the server in background or show the actual mediaserver window. That's all what the two checkboxes here do.
