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

Media Streaming Server

Version 1.4.1 released

We are pleased to announce that version 1.4.1 has been released.

This is mostly a bugfixing release, with some additional small features added to the mix.

For the MediaBrowser changes to appear, don't forget to clear your browser cache.

As usual, thanks to the testers for the feedback.

Version 1.4 released

We are pleased to announce that version 1.4 has been released.

This includes a major MediaBrowser redesign (Pro edition only). It is now designed with a mobile-first approach making it much more usable on mobiles and tablets, is responsive and supports 'retina' displays. This has been a major undertaking and is just the beginning, there will be more features coming to MediaBrowser in the future.

There are additional new features (although no major ones this time) and bug fixes.

As usual, many thanks to the beta testers and translators.

Have a great Holiday season, everyone.

Version 1.3.1 released

In a quick succession after the 1.3 release we are happy to bring you a mostly bug fixing release 1.3.1.

It addresses some library indexing performance issues as well as fixed hardsubs on some platforms. Get more details.

Version 1.3 released

We are happy to announce that version 1.3 is now ready for your download.

There have been numerous improvements for the Pro customers. Namely support for iOS devices in MediaBrowser and assigning a default Access group to new devices.

Serviio now supports more subtitle formats, enables transcoding to H264 (thanks to libx264), offers more browsing categories for Audio, makes it much easier to share online sources via ServiioLinks and many more.

There have also been numerous bug fixes and stability improvements, notably caused by latest java update on OSX.

Please note that if you are upgrading from previous versions, your whole library will be re-scanned, which might take some time and use considerable amount of CPU as well.

As always, thanks to the betatesters and translators for helping us deliver this to you.

Version 1.2 released

We are pleased to announce that version 1.2 is available for download.

This version is mostly focused on bringing full subtitles support to all the devices. It brings support for different subtitles formats as well as delivery methods (hardsubs, softsubs).

It also makes it easier to stream your content over the Internet (if you are a Pro customer) by automatically managing the incoming ports on your UPnP router.

Owners of Sony Bluray players should check the assigned profile is still correct - we have split the BDP profile into several profiles to take advantage of new features in the newer models. The 2012 model profile is now the default one.

As always, thanks go to the testers, translators and guys helping at the forum.

Version 1.2.1 released

We are happy to announce that a bug fixing release 1.2.1 is now out. Please update when possible.

This should fix some of the networking issues you might have encountered with 1.2. There are also updates to thetvdb.com series metadata retrieval.

Please note, that this release includes the same FFmpeg as included in 1.2, and you will therefore have the same issues with transcoding mjpeg videos. We can only suggest to try the latest FFmpeg build to overcome it.

As always, thanks to the betatesters for helping us deliver this to you.
