Universal Media Server is a media server capable of serving videos, audio, and images to any DLNA-capable device. It is free, regularly updated, and has more features than any other media server, including paid media servers.

Universal Media Server supports all major operating systems, with versions for Windows, Linux, and macOS. The program streams or transcodes video, audio, and image formats with little or no configuration. It is powered by FFmpeg, MEncoder, tsMuxeR, MediaInfo, OpenSubtitles, and more, which combine to offer support for a wide range of media formats.

It streams to many devices including Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3) and PlayStation 4 (PS4), Microsoft Xbox One and 360, many TVs (Samsung, Panasonic, Sony, Vizio, LG, Philips, Sharp), smartphones (iPhone, Android, etc.), Blu-ray player, and more.

Note: Requires Java Runtime Environment.
