Universal Media Server is a free DLNA, UPnP and HTTP/S Media Server.

We support all major operating systems, with versions for Windows, Linux and macOS.

The program streams or transcodes many different media formats with little or no configuration.

It is powered by FFmpeg, MediaInfo, OpenSubtitles, Crowdin, MEncoder, tsMuxeR, AviSynth, VLC and more, which combine to offer support for a wide range of media formats.

It was originally based on PS3 Media Server by shagrath, and started by SubJunk, an official developer of PMS, in order to ensure greater stability and file-compatibility.
