Universal Media Server is a DLNA-compliant UPnP Media Server based on the PS3 Media Server by shagrath.
It is actually an evolution of the “SubJunk Build” of PMS. UMS was started by SubJunk, an official developer of PMS, to ensure greater stability and file-compatibility. Because it is written in Java, Universal Media Server supports all major operating systems.
Universal Media Server streams or transcodes many different media formats with little or no configuration. It is powered by MEncoder, FFmpeg, tsMuxeR, AviSynth, MediaInfo and more, which combine to offer support for a broad range of media formats.
Universal Media Server is a media server capable of serving videos, audio and images to any DLNA-capable device.
It is free, regularly updated and has more features than any other media server, including paid media servers.
It streams to many devices including Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3) and PlayStation 4 (PS4), Microsoft Xbox One and 360, many TVs (Samsung, Panasonic, Sony, Vizio, LG, Philips, Sharp), smart phones (iPhone, Android, etc.), Blu-ray players, and more.
