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.
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)
In my opinion the only one software in its class I found here really workable! But yes, only flaw for me is that it's impossible fo seek videofile during playing. Maybe it doesn't depend on server side but on a media player? I'm using AIR AV and VLC, Not first nor second are able to seek video file during playing.
Lximedia works perfect.
Good and useful software
Went through countless DLNA servers as I was looking for something streaming and trans-coding into my Android phone, he isn't powerful enough to play FullHD for example... almost 99% can't do a job properly, they are made for TVs, Xbox etc, but Android needs specific decoding done. The ones which were working fine were Wild Media Sever and Media center. I was looking for something which would transcode MKV with different languages and subtitles and this LXiMedia is just excellent!!! You can choose which Audio track to play! With or without subtitles - just brilliant! For android user like me just perfect!
