UPnP AV MediaServers

extraído do Wikipedia
UPnP AV MediaServers store and share digital media, such as photographs, movies, or music. These media servers use the Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) protocols to communicate with other devices.

UPnP AV MediaServers on their own provide UPnP AV ControlPoints to browse the music content of the server and request the MediaServer to start streaming that file to the ControlPoint for local playback. The UPnP AV other device categories and protocols outlines the various components [1].

There are UPnP MediaServers available for most operating-systems and many hardware-platforms. UPnP AV MediaServers can either be categorized as software-based or hardware-based. Software-based UPnP AV MediaServers can be run on PCs (Personal-Computers), mainly on Microsoft Windows, Linux, BSD, Unix or Mac OS X. Hardware-based UPnP AV MediaServers may run on any NAS (Network Attached Storage) devices or any specific hardware for delivering media, such as a PVR (Personal Video Recorder). As of May 2008, there are more software-based UPnP AV MediaServers than there are hardware-based.
