Ubuntu – What DLNA server to choose?


What DLNA server program should I choose and how do I set it up?
It is an absolute requirement that it doesn't take a lot of resources since it will be running on a 500 MHz machine.

There seems to be quite a few server programs and I don't have any experience with these userfriendly auto-detecet protocols/services.

Btw, the server doesn't have a GUI…

Quite popular and only a web interface to speak of. It also does on-the-fly transcoding but you may need to disable that or your little 500mhz server might explode.


MediaTomb is unsupported since 2017-04-03.
They direct users to Gerbera, which is built upon MediaTomb.
