Version 1.8 released
We are pleased to announce that version 1.8 is ready for download. There are a couple of nice new features in this release.
Serviio now can detect when you start and stop playing a file. In some cases it’s still based on estimation (due to the DLNA protocol limitations), but for basic overview of what is playing where it should do. Check out the playback notifications in the Console and playback info on the Status page in the Console.
On the back of the above, Serviio now integrates with trakt.tv service. Serviio will add your library items to the Trakt.tv collection (assuming you are using descritpive metadata for your videos) and will also keep track of the videos you play to update your viewing progress on trakt.tv. Go check them out.
Lastly, Serviio finally supports multiple genres per video.
As usual, the upgrade will rescan your entire library, so expect some higher CPU usage while it’s happening.
Serviio 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.
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 is based on Java technology and therefore runs on most platforms, including Windows, Mac and Linux (incl. embedded systems, e.g. NAS).
