Serviio License

Posted By admin On 15/11/21

The best way of sharing video, music and photos over your network is by using a media server. And if you want your media server to work with a wide range of devices – mobiles, computers, consoles, smart TVs and more – then you want to pick one that’s DLNA certified.

Serviio works with many devices from your connected home such as tv, playstation 3, xbox 360, smart phones, tablets, etc. New version Serviio Pro key software supports profiles for particular devices so that it can be tuned to maximise the device potential and minimize lack of media format playback support. Serviio - Registration By accessing “Serviio” (hereinafter “we”, “us”, “our”, “Serviio”, “you agree to be legally bound by the following terms. If you do not agree to be legally bound by all of the following terms then please do not access and/or use “Serviio”.

There are plenty of DLNA-certified media servers out there – even a recent update to Plex Media Server added DLNA support – but they’re not all equal. The better ones tend to cost money, but while Serviio comes as a 14-day trial of a Pro version, after that date it’ll revert to the fully functional free edition, which contains all the functionality developed during the app’s beta.

The free version lets you stream both local and online content over your local network, supports a variety of third-party devices as well as your PC and mobile, and includes on-the-fly transcoding. It’s also capable of pulling metadata from internet sites such as thetvdb.com, so you simply name up your files correctly (typically moviename or tvseries-s00e00) and it’ll pull all the details you need to browse your media collection from another device.

Serviio comes in two parts: the server itself, and a console for configuring it, such as choosing which folders to include. It requires Java, which makes it cross-platform, and can technically be installed on ARM-based NAS drives, allowing you to run a server directly from your network drive. Sadly, it overwhelmed our under-powered ShareCenter DNS-320, forcing us to retreat to TWONKY on that device.

No DLNA media server is going to compare favourably to Plex’s wonderful user experience, so perhaps it’s a little unfair to compare Serviio directly to it. It’s worthy of consideration, particularly thanks to its internet scraping capabilities, and decent codec support, but there are still glitches, both in playback and correctly identifying content from its metadata, that count against it. It also rankles that certain features – specifically the lightweight web-based media browser and ability to access your media from outside your home network – are restricted to the $25 Pro version only.

'Version 1.5' is mostly focused on making using Serviio easier and less error-prone for the users. Java now comes bundled with the Windows and OSX versions, so you don't need to install it on your system manually and deal with problems when your Java gets updated. Linux users still have to install Java 8 (which is now the minimum requirement). OSX version is now distributed as an installer and starts the server as a service when your Mac boots up - no more Force close when shutting down your Mac. Only 64-bit Macs are supported now.

The library indexing engine has been reworked, so that you get your filesystem changes reflected in the library immediately, without the need of a constant refresh. It should also make the process less CPU intensive. Remote drives are also handled differently without any side effects.

Verdict:

Serviio Evaluation License

A good stab at providing a feature-rich and reasonably lightweight media server, but its internet scraping capabilities are too unforgiving when it comes to media file naming.

Serviio (for Windows) is a free, DLNA-compliant media server for the Windows platform. It currently supports several different devices, some of them being Sony Bravia television models, Panasonic TVs, Sony Blu-ray players which support media streaming, Samsung TVs and Blu-ray players, the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 consoles and several other brands of modern television sets which hook up to your home network.

Servio can stream all kinds of different audio and video formats (both standard-def and hi-def), images and albums and supports real-time transcoded if required.

Servio keeps a library of your current media in its database from your hard drives or network drives and will also easily stream media from online services like RSS feeds and live audio/video streams from public broadcasters and other services you might be interested in viewing (such as Justin.TV/Twitch.TV).

To keep you informed about what you'd like to watch, Servio also provides metadata information directly on your television screen; it will also include visual representations of it via thumbnails, CD covers and DVD posters. These are viewable in the XBMC on the PS3. Servio also comes with full support for subtitle files.

The video formats that Servio currently supports are among: MPG1, MPG2, MPG4, TS, M2TS, AVI, WMV, ASF, MKV and FLV... among others.

If you're looking for an easy way to watch files not normally supported by your DLNA device, Servio can transcode and stream it.
