    How to DLNA on Mac OS X Server?

    I am currently waiting for my new "Apple" OSX Server to be done but have stumbled upon a thing I did not think about...

    I am going to use it for Plex on my TV, Sonos in a bunch of rooms and DLNA on my two Internet radios - but that last part don't seem to be possible...


    Any way I can make my OS X DLNA capable so it can share to "normal" devices like a DLNA Internet radio??
    Any software I can run that you guys have knowledge about is any good?

    I saw that Asset UPnP is being developed for the Mac OS which is great news for Mac users. You should look into that.

    Not sure why you wouldn't use Windows for all the DLNA components you have in this system. That said, EyeConnect for the Mac works as a DLNA server so you can use Mac if needed.

    I don't seem to find a version with Mac support - but actually I have tried this product before when I had trouble with DLNA under WinXP.
    They say it can run in Parallels, which I also have, but trouble with that is that you have to virtualize a full Windows machine with separate RAM resources, Windows license, antivirus and so on... Not really worth it I am pretty damn sure...

    If there are no better way than Asset, then they mention in their Forum that it can be run in CrossOver, which is more a 1-application solution to run Windows apps without a full working Windows OS running.


    So, is there any other DLNA/UPnP software clients you can recommend, preferably that can run in CrossOver or directly in OS X?

    I have seen that Plex app can also work with many DLNA products, but does it also share music files, as in HD-FLAC files like mine?

    Actually now when I look around I find two that look promising, the MinimServer is a pure music server and the Serviio is a multipurpose server. I don't mind if I end up with a multipurpose server in the end, because I might have the need some day...

    Any of those programs good?

    Try iSedora, Playback, and Majestic. They all are multipurpose but deliver high res audio, MC, whatever.

    PlexServer should work for DNLA as well as PlexDesktop Clients

    Playback works well and runs in the background.
