DLNA Media Servers and Players

Last update : March 12, 2013

The following list provides links to informations about DLNA media devices, especially Media Servers :

A list of additional media servers and client applications is available on Wikipedia which provides also a comparisons of UPnP AV media servers.

Apple developed its own proprietary streaming protocol stack/suite, called AirPlay, that is not compliant with DLNA. Another solution to stream multimedia files is based on the SMB/CIFS networking protocols, re-implementated with Samba to open windows to a wider world.

I recommend the Serviio DLNA server which I installed a week ago on my two Windows 7 desktops to replace Windows Media Players.
