Serviio is a free media server. It allows you to stream your media files (music, video or images) to renderer devices (e.g. a TV set, Bluray player, games console or mobile phone) on your connected home network. There is also a paid for Pro edition($25) which further enhances the possibilities of sharing content in your connected household. Serviio works with many devices from your connected home (TV, Playstation 3, XBox 360, smart phones, tablets, etc.). It supports profiles for particular devices so that it can be tuned to maximise the device's potential and/or minimize lack of media format playback support (via transcoding). Free vs Pro comparison. Pro version costs $25.

Love it. I've looked at other DLNA and was always underwhelmed. But Serviio changed my mind. It gives me everything I need for playback from my Sony BD players -- along with browsing for movies, photos, and music. I liked it so much that I go the PRO version -- not because I needed any of the advanced capabilities, but instead because I think a software project this good needs to be supported.

I can't believe it still requires Java 6 and asks you to install Java 6 upon installation.
This should be upgraded to use Java 7.

Ive tried ALL the DNLA media servers out there, Serviio is just the best one!

Online plugins support is amazing, you can download custom video websites plugins like iPlayer, YouTube, HULU ect
Theres even apps on Android and Windows phone to remotely change settings
Best of you can stream outside your home using MediaBrowser and Android app called ServiiGo

This servers just brilliant, now i use it everyday!


Review by aziztt on Dec 18, 2012 Version: 1.0.1 OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10




I've been using Serviio for about a year now. Absolutely the easiest media server software to install, setup and use, and I've tried almost all of them. Not a lot of bells and whistles but it works great. I have all my media installed 1.5TB WDHD and use WD Live Plus unit with a wireless usb router to connect to my desktop PC, which is a dedicated to media only. Best of all, the program is free, and has great support!!!

Serviio in my opinion is the best available DLNA media server. I currently use it to stream to my xbox 360 and ps3 from my video library and also live streams. I choose it over PMS because of its ability to handle my mkv files and also the software developer is very active in the support forums and frequently replies to help requests and posts. It is 100% Free however it is something that I would pay for if need be.
