Universal Media Server is a UPnP Media DLNA compliant server that supports major operating systems, Windows, Linux and Mac OS X and enables us to turn our PC into a very powerful Media Server, in simple terms it enables us to listen music to watch movies and photos from any computer, cell phone, TV, Tablet or any other device that can access our local network.
The biggest advantage of the app is that you don’t need any special settings, you just run it and automatically anyone on your network can browse your computer’s content. UMS is based on MEncoder, FFmpeg, tsMuxeR, AviSynth, MediaInfo and other software combined to provide support for a wide range of different media formats.
