Businesses are storing their data on the network for ages now, but the past few years, there has been a trend in home networking to put all content on a central server and distributing it to the home computers and dedicated appliances on the network. This page offers an overview of the possible packages to stream digital media (video, audio and images, and in several cases also online content) from your server to your clients.

Businesses are storing their data on the network for ages now, but the past few years, there has been a trend in home networking to put all content on a central server and distributing it to the home computers and dedicated appliances on the network. This page offers an overview of the possible packages to stream digital media (video, audio and images, and in several cases also online content) from your server to your clients.

Servers

UPnP / DLNA

There are many UPnP or DLNA-compliant server and you can use Mpd too. Some of the them do not get along together. If you are experiencing problems, make sure you are not running two of them at the same time.

And here is a list of DLNA controller applications. These can be used to control a DLNA renderer and server:

Deprecated / No Longer in Development

MPD
