I tried a previous version and it was very slow starting videos due to waiting while it transcoded. Perhaps there were profiles that would allow it to skip transcoding but I didn't see any in the menus. Also I noticed Plex wants media files to have names in a specific format. I had no interest in renaming all my media. Serviio was much faster for me so I uninstalled Plex and went back to using Serviio.

I now tried the updated version 0.9.7.9. I got the following error message "A problem has been detected with a core component of Plex. Please visit the forums". So with the newer version I couldn't get it to work at all. The program may be good once they get the bugs out. Of all the DLNA servers I've tried Serviio works the most reliably.

Please make it work on 1 million Roku players, and many more Wii's and you really got a winner. I gave it a 9 across the board because you are on the right track.
