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

Media Streaming Server

Version 1.2 released

We are pleased to announce that version 1.2 is available for download.

This version is mostly focused on bringing full subtitles support to all the devices. It brings support for different subtitles formats as well as delivery methods (hardsubs, softsubs).

It also makes it easier to stream your content over the Internet (if you are a Pro customer) by automatically managing the incoming ports on your UPnP router.

Owners of Sony Bluray players should check the assigned profile is still correct - we have split the BDP profile into several profiles to take advantage of new features in the newer models. The 2012 model profile is now the default one.

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

Serviio is the 3rd most popular media server

I'm pleased to announce that version 1.1 is available for download.

This version brings support for RAW camera images, additional codec support and overall greater stability. More details here.

There are also additional new features for the Pro edition users, like file seeking in the and the possibility to create playlists in theMediaBrowser.

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

Version 1.0.1 Released

I'm pleased to release version 1.0.1 for general consumption.

This release includes only a few fixes and profile updates to all the goodies from 1.0.

ServiiDB is live and kicking

Looking for interesting online sources? Do you have some to share with others? Interested in an easy way to manage your online content in Serviio? Look no further, serviidb.com has arrived.

ServiiDB is a database  for storing information about online sources. Although it is not affiliated to Serviio in any way it has been built by the Serviio community (lead by our forum member Moltra).

You can add new online content entries, search for content, rate content quality and report whether the link is still live.

There is also a public API which enables other products integrate with ServiiDB. Currently ServiiDroid, the android Serviio console app, has added the support. That means you can now search for and add online entries to your Serviio library from the comfort of your sofa.

All it needs now is for the users to start entering more content and hopefully we can make this a great tool for everyone.  

Version 1.0 Released

It's been a long wait, but 1.0 has finally landed. This major release brings a split of Serviio into two editions, Free and Pro. Download the Pro edition, evaluate for 15 days and if you like the added features, buy it. If you do not feel like going Pro, Serviio will revert to the Free edition - but do not worry, it still includes all the features previously released and more.

The Pro edition has some nice features, like web based MediaBrowser, that will enable you to browse and watch your content from wherever you are. The piece of software that enables this (API) is available to developers and there are already some apps that take advantage of it.

Another useful feature in Pro edition is Access Groups. This will enable you to restrict access to some of your content for certain devices and can therefore be useful in families, etc.

There is also a much sought after support for (local) playlists, proper aspect ratio handling and much more.

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

Hope you enjoy this one as much as I did making it.
