A DLNA compatible, fully transcoding, media server designed for serving media (movies, TV shows, music, photos) to DLNA compliant televisions and media players (Streamium, PS3, XBox 360). Also subtitles and audio language selection are supported.
- DVD and High Definition resolutions (720p and 1080p).
- Stereo and multi-channel (5.1 surround) audio.
- High quality subtitle overlay, support for embedded subtitles and SRT subtitle files.
- Selection of an audio stream and/or subtitle overlay from the DLNA device.
I am running the server on my windows machine and it works fairly well. There are two issues that I have noticed as of the time of this writing: On some videos the audio and video are not synced and at times my dlna client will say there is no content but that is fixed by reconnecting. However, compared to many of the other programs this one works the best. I hope development continues to work out the small bugs.
This is very valuable application for sharing files over DLNA devices. However, there is a minor problem when the "photos" section is browsed and there something else than photos (.pdf or other stuff that it cannot recognize (file named something different than western characters) then the browsing jams and it does not go any forward and does not show the folder contents.). Workaround was to make new folder where the other files were transfered then the browsing was able to continue. There was no difference in setting "pictures" or "automatic". And with Linux there was a issue of old gcc libraries 4.9 that had to compile separately to Linux system (Zorin 9 lite) to make this program work.
Can't display Chinese subtitles well. It is the encoding problem.
Positive review because it actually works (my criteria is ripped blu-rays and in particular coded with VC-1) and I tried many (plex, serviio,tvmobilis, univeral media server) that failed at some point on the critical transcoding activity. To fully fullfill my need I wish to have a readynas installer. But at least I found where to access the web interface for remote administration (there is HTTP access with port 4280)
I have problem when using. It shows "many job total=100" and then i cannot set up it.
