Universal Media Server is a DLNA-compliant UPnP media server. It originated as a fork of PS3 Media Server. It allows streaming of media files to a wide range of devices including video game consoles, smart TVs, smartphones, and Blu-ray players.[4] It streams and transcodes multimedia files over a network connection to the rendering device, ensuring that a supported rendering device will receive the content in a format supported by the device. Transcoding is accomplished through packages from AviSynth, FFMpeg, MEncoder, and VLC.[4]

Enhancements over its predecessor, PS3 Media Server, include web interface support for non-DLNA devices, more supported renderers, automatic bit rate adjustment, and many other transcoding improvements.[5]
