Universal Media Server

Stream your media to your devices, whether they are TVs, smartphones, gaming consoles, computers, audio receivers, and more!

Hundreds more


Connect to your media using any web browser on any device for a feature-rich dive into dynamic pages for every media file you have. Play directly from the browser, or send to your devices.

We do not track any actions you take in the program. How many other media servers can claim that? Your server is as secure as your home network, and all external requests are made via secure connections.

Support for the largest range of media renderers. Connect to your media via UPnP or DLNA on a large selection of devices, whether television, audio device, gaming console, computer, smartphone or more, with regular improvements to all.

Dynamic lookup of metadata for your media allows you to easily find related media. Filter videos by actor, director, genre, year and more, and music by artist, genre, year and more. We integrate with services like IMDb and MusicBrainz to dynamically display the correct covers for your videos and music.

Add and manage your online radio channels, podcasts and RSS feeds for all media types and view from any of your connected devices.

Access your media instantly, with no waiting for scans to finish. We have scanning for extra features too, but you still have access to your media in the meantime.

Even if your video has no subtitles, or it has them in the wrong language, just enable our Live Subtitles feature to download them on the fly. Coupled with our interface which supports 40+ languages, we have first-class international support.

We support passing your media to your devices untouched if they support it, otherwise we will transform it to suit your network, device, and language preferences. We also provide support for your physical media with the ability to directly access your disc drives and disc images.
