"Serviio works much better, and for free."
Version: Mezzmo 2.6.1
Does not require per-device licensing as some other media servers do.
Even after hours of fiddling and configuring of device profiles, it still will not stream H.264 encoded videos to my Sony BD player (which plays that format natively). Support forums suggested transcoding my .mp4s into .avi format, are working fine, but I don't feel like I should have to do. Serviio, on the other hand, detected the device type and assigned the right profile, and streamed all video files to the same device instantly and seamlessly. The second nail in Mezzmo's coffin was when my wife bought a Logitech Revue (with which Mezzmo advertises compatibility), but even after fiddling with the obligatory device profiles and other settings it will not detect media indexed by the server (forget playing the media, it won't even display the list). The third nail in their coffin was the $30 price tag, which you might assume would entitle you to a stable, mature, polished product, which is not at all the case.
I'm not a digital multimedia expert, but I'm a highly technical user. I recognize that DLNA is still in its infancy as a technology, and just now starting to be widely used. That said, I would have expected a more mature and functional product for the $30 I paid. I cannot recommend this product.
