Serviio - free DLNA media server for Windows, Mac and Linux

Media Streaming Server

Version 1.8 released

We are pleased to announce that version 1.8 is ready for download. There are a couple of nice new features in this release.

Serviio now can detect when you start and stop playing a file. In some cases it's still based on estimation (due to the DLNA protocol limitations), but for basic overview of what is playing where it should do. Check out the playback notifications in the Console and playback info on the Status page in the Console.

On the back of the above, Serviio now integrates with service. Serviio will add your library items to the collection (assuming you are using descritpive metadata for your videos) and will also keep track of the videos you play to update your viewing progress on Go check them out.

Lastly, Serviio finally supports multiple genres per video.

As usual, the upgrade will rescan your entire library, so expect some higher CPU usage while it's happening.

Version 1.7.1 released

Version 1.7.1 is now ready for general consumption.

This release includes only a few fixes for the recently released 1.7.

Version 1.7 released

We are happy to announce that version 1.7 is now ready. This release was mostly based around better and more streamlined support for languages in video files, either audio tracks or subtitles. Serviio now finally supports delivering transcoded files with multiple audio tracks or gives you the option to prefer a particular audio language.

Another useful feature is the integration with, that brings automatically downloaded subtitles for your video files.

You can now also change the style of subtitles, if they are burned-in.

Thanks to everyone who helped with this release.

QNAP officially supported

We have partnered with QNAP and Serviio is now officially supported on QNAP NAS devices. You can find the application in your NAS App Center.

Version 1.6 released

We are delighted to announce that version 1.6 is now available to everyone.

This release includes a completely new, web based, console. It's now much easier to configure your server from wherever you are, and it also scales well on all your screen sizes (tablets, phones, etc). You can access the console either by running the executable (as usual), or by opening the console web page (http://localhost:23423/console). As a part of this change we have also removed the system tray icon.

Another biggie is a support for stacked videos (Pro only). Do you have a DVD structure folder and want to see the whole folder as a single library entry? Do you have a multi-part video and want to do the same? No problem.

There is now also support for more subtitles formats (incl. bitmap based subtitles), and a few more smaller new features and bug fixes.

Big thanks to the testers and translators, as usual.

Version 1.6.1 released

Version 1.6.1 is now available. This is mainly a maintenance release, incl. some bug fixes and adding support for a few additional codecs.

Thanks to everyone who helped test and raised the issues.

Version 1.5.2 released

We are bringing you the latest fix version from the 1.5 line. This 1.5.2 version mostly focuses on fixing the automatic library updates, especially where the poller is enforced.
