Serviio overview

Serviio is a free DLNA media server. It allows you to stream your media files (music, video or images) to any DLNA-certified renderer device (e.g., a TV set, Blu-ray player, games console) on your home network.

Serviio is based on Java technology and therefore runs on most platforms, including Windows, Mac, and Linux (including embedded systems, such as NAS).

While Serviio is free, additional features are available in the Pro version.

Version 2.1 is not working.
Does not recognize external drives nor the user's download folder.
Going back to version 2.0 and everything works fine.

I would prefer UMS. Because its for free and doesn't mess up the Hard drive.

Would recommend Plex and UMS over this. Paid for it and doesn't show up on the desktop or the tv. In the past, when it did show, it buffers heavily and subtitles don't always show. The library refreshes intermittently and the support is..'post on the forum and hope someone else has fixed it. Not worth paying for. Much better value elsewhere.

Been using Serviio for more than 5 years now: reliable and customizable. For efficient DLNA streaming, Serviio is the one get.

I've been looking for a free app or server which will allow me to stream my media to different devices. So I downloaded this app. I didn't expect that I had to spend lots of time to figure out how it works and I hope that in future the setup instructions and installation process, in general, will be improved. It also overwhelms my computer and it starts lagging. Probably, I have to look for something better...
