    Question Best DLNA server out there ?

    I do not know if i should be posting in the server thread or here, but here goes.

    I'm looking for a DLNA server with transcode capability that runs natively on linux. No VMs (e.g. Java) and no emulators (e.g. wine).

    Normally i would have a thin client and just nfs mount the folders with my entire library on this server, but I purchased a TV with DLNA.

    I've tried mediatomb, but thats abandonware.
    Twonky came with my TV, but thats no better than mediatomb.

    Currently trying Rygel, and thinking about Coherence and LXIMedia.

    Anyone have recommendations ?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    DLNA - a Sony-run trade organization. Good luck with that! As for video transcoders for Linux, try ffmpeg. It is command-line driven, but it can convert just about any video type to any other, if it isn't DRM-encumbered. Sony is big into DRM, so don't get your hopes up - they don't do much of anything for Linux...
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
