Serviio is a free DLNA media server developed and just released by WGS forum member Petr Nejedly.  Just what can a DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) media server do for you?

From Petr:

 

Serviio is a free DLNA compatible 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, games console) on your home network.

Serviio uses a priority-based metadata extraction so that you can choose what metadata should describe your media files (e.g. audio track name, DVD cover, TV series and episodes names, etc.). These include metadata embedded into the media files themselves, locally stored metadata files and metadata that can be obtained online. With this powerful tool you will be able to build your Serviio media library easily and effectively.

Based on Java technology, Subsonic runs on most platforms, including Windows, Mac and Linux.

I like the idea of “music, video or images” in one product.  In addition, Petr currently has it running on his WHS, so time to check this one out!
