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?

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.David

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?

Try iSedora, Playback, and Majestic. They all are multipurpose but deliver high res audio, MC, whatever.Macbook Pro 2010->DLNA/UPNP fed by Drobo->Oppo BDP-93->Yamaha RXV2065 ->Panasonic GT25 -> 5.0 system Bowers & Wilkins 683 towers, 685 surrounds, HTM61 center ->Mostly SPDIF, or Analog out.

Playback works well and runs in the background.
