The only server I find workable. Not bloated and not written in damn java. Supports just about every file type. The only drawback for me is the way seek is implemented; it would be nice if seeking could work normally.
I have especially registered to left real review as it seems all these review from technical people. First DO NOT INSTALL THIS ON OSX as it is a RAW program/app. It's not suitable for regular average apple user. Why? Simple. 1. Apple ecosystem requires for instance simple rule: Move to Applications folder and run. That's all, guys! Not pretend to work as in all in Linux, and not ugly interface as in Windows. OSX Mountain Lion, Maverics..program installed and run! Yeah! It shows ugly interface and strange logic's behind which folder to propaganda - Local means local PC (I think personal computer) and all devices locally bonded to local PC. Owner of the program said , NO. USB devices are going to the hell...But it's OK. We can create hardline, symlinks and aliases even to solve this. 2. Ugly Interface - I have no words. 3. Program / app runs and does NOTHING. Both TV one smart one no, said error watcher,, go,,go,,go..means error message TV can not enter into the media servier and show me movie listing in any form. This is last and important part as it shows how creators respect users. When I UNinstall this creating, I even used special uninstallators in OSX. I still see in listing of the UPNP/DLN?Media Servers in TV and Networking part this program/app/server. BUT I DID UNINSTALL the APP. If it is mark with -1 ..below ground. I will put that on the app. If I knew all this I for sure NOT to install this app on my beautiful macbook!
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.
Can't display Chinese subtitles well. It is the encoding problem.
