From MediaTomb - Free UPnP MediaServer:

MediaTomb is an open source (GPL) UPnP MediaServer with a nice web user interface, it allows you to stream your digital media through your home network and listen to/watch it on a variety of UPnP compatible devices.

MediaTomb enables users to stream digital media to UPnP compatible devices like the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Several alternatives exist, such as FUPPES, ps3mediaserver, and uShare. One of MediaTomb's distinguishing features is the ability to customize the server layout based on extracted metadata (scriptable virtual containers); MediaTomb is highly flexible.

Installation

MediaTomb is available in the Arch User Repository: Template:Package AUR. The latest development version is also available via Template:Package AUR.

Configuration

Following installation, users should run Template:Codeline in a terminal to generate a default server configuration file (Template:Filename). The default settings may be sufficient for many users, though changes are required for PlayStation 3 support. Press Ctrl+C to terminate the server after the initial run.
