Serviio - free DLNA media server for Windows, Mac and Linux

Media Streaming Server

Alexa skill now available in US and UK

It's been a while but the Serviio Alexa skill is finally available in the Alexa skill store.

To use this skill you will need Pro edition (evaluation will not be enough) and have the remote access set up.

Check out the detailed instructions about how to use the skill.

Version 1.9.2 released

A new patch release is out. It mostly addresses some playback issues in MediaBrowser on iOS and also fixes a bug causing files not being added to the library after 24 hours of running the server.

Everyone is welcome to upgrade.

Version 1.9 Released

We are pleased to announce that version 1.9 is available for download.

The biggest change in this release is the new HTML5 player in MediaBrowser. It replaces the Flash player and should work well in most modern browsers. You can also name your devices in the console.

Apart from all the other changes we have also made a lot of changes in the background that will enable integrating with other services, like the Alexa skill (stay tuned).

As always, thanks go to the testers, translators and guys helping at the forum.

Version 1.9.1 released

We are pleased to announce that version 1.9.1 is available for download.

This is a patch release with mostly bug fixes and optimizations. There are some new features too, mostly related to subtitles support and updated HTML5 player in MediaBrowser.

As always, thanks go to the testers, translators and guys helping at the forum.

Version 1.8 released

We are pleased to announce that version 1.8 is ready for download. There are a couple of nice new features in this release.

Serviio now can detect when you start and stop playing a file. In some cases it's still based on estimation (due to the DLNA protocol limitations), but for basic overview of what is playing where it should do. Check out the playback notifications in the Console and playback info on the Status page in the Console.

On the back of the above, Serviio now integrates with trakt.tv service. Serviio will add your library items to the Trakt.tv collection (assuming you are using descritpive metadata for your videos) and will also keep track of the videos you play to update your viewing progress on trakt.tv. Go check them out.

Lastly, Serviio finally supports multiple genres per video.

As usual, the upgrade will rescan your entire library, so expect some higher CPU usage while it's happening.
