    I've been using minidlna for about two years. Prior to minidlna i thought DLNA was garbage and did everything over SMB due to so many issues. However this server is so good, family productivity has been reduced to zero because of the reliability of streaming movies. It is the first thing i ever installed that has been wife approved. I stream to Samsung Smart TV's (manufactured 2012-2014) PCs, android tablets, iphones, RK3066 tv sticks and seagate free agent theatre+. It seems to be the only simple, reliable, non-bloated dlna server out there. Configuration is cake. I've used this with a minimal install of ubuntu and now OpenBSD 5.6 with tremendous success. It undergoes constant use in my large family. It is very rare that i have an issue. Most of the movies i throw at it are MKV's, XVIDS, old avi's. I have had only one issue with special characters in filenames have screwed up the ordering of movies on the tv; ie you click on one movie and it is really three down. This is easy to fix by having sane filenames. My preference and standard are all lowercases with only dot (period) seperators For example rocky.ii.mkv, rocky.iii.mkv etc. Also have had no issues applying pictures to represent the movies , and downloading subtitles. Previous hardware was Intel DN2800MT Motherboard/Atom DN2800/2GB RAM on sata drives. Current hardware is AMD A6/16GB RAM running VMWare ESX which runs minidlnad in an OpenBSD VM with 512MB RAM along with other more resource-intensive VM's.

    It's awesome. Feeds Samsung TVs with any kind of media via Wi-Fi. Runs perfectly on a tiny box with Atom D2700 processor and 4 Gb RAM inside. I use it only for video, audio interface lacks usability.

    Very simple to install! Works perfectly with my LG TV. Brings the subtitles, features as forwarding and backward without more configurations.

    Best media server around. Fast, stable, reliable, small in fottprint. Eats almost all formats and is compatible witheverything I could possibly test it with. Glad to see development has started again as it needs more development for video, ie sorting for genre, actor, years, etc... And should extract album/cover artwork from embedded tags rather than folder images only.
