Serviio DNLA Server is a free media server. It allows you to stream 
your media files (music, video or images) to renderer devices (e.g. a
TV set, Bluray player, games console or mobile phone) on your connected
home network.

There is also a paid for Pro edition which further enhances the
possibilities of sharing content in your connected household. If you
don't buy a Pro edition licence, Serviio automatically will turn to
Free version after 14 days. This SlackBuild provides no Pro edition

Serviio works with many devices from your connected home (TV,
Playstation 3, XBox 360, smart phones, tablets, etc.). It supports
profiles for particular devices so that it can be tuned to maximise the
device's potential and/or minimize lack of media format playback
support (via transcoding).

Serviio needs a serviio user and a serviio group with GID=337 and
UID=337 to work properly. Run these commands:

groupadd -g 337 serviio
useradd -d /opt/serviio -g 337 -u 337 -U serviio

This SlackBuild also provides a /etc/rc.d/rc.serviio file. If you want
to start Serviio at boot time, add these lines to /etc/rc.d/rc.local:

# start Serviio DNLA Server:
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.serviio] ; then
/etc/rc.d/rc.serviio start

Also, add to rc.local_shutdown

# stop Serviio DNLA Server
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.serviio] ; then
/etc/rc.d/rc.serviio start

This requires: jdk
