I have tried Twonky, Mediatomb, Kodi, Plex, Universal Media Server. Nothing is a bug-free, tight and efficient as ReadyMedia.
Excellent software. I started with the static version, but then ended up building from source on CentOS 7 because I'm a bit dorky and wanted to change the Tux icon. The software just works... no messing with a ton of settings, it doesn't use many resources and my DLNA devices are responding so much faster than they did with other software I've tried. Even with 16,000+ FLAC, MP3, .JPG, AVI & MP4 video files to scan to build its database, it only takes a few minutes, then everything is good to go.
Best DLNA server out there by far. Fast, light weight, compatible with most devices and formats. Should be included in the devices instead of horrible stuff like Twonky and such.
Another fine example of OSS. Plus, it's readily available for CentOS 7 (NUX) and just works after configuring it. Kudos to the devs.
I really like this from the beginning. Lightweight no stupid GUI's just doing what it is supposed too. Tried Plex and Emby but this is it. Just does what is needs to do! No fancy webinterfaces and resource eating stuff. Just plain sharing with DNLA great! Keep it up like this and let the noobs go around with fancy resource eating stuff.
