    CAUTION!! Allmediaserver site has little or poor info about the product. The major scare is that the user support forums are totally just SPAM posts.

    Not worth the risk. Would not touch it. Certainly do not download the app.

      Indeed, they need to clean up their forums as most of them can get spammed easily without a good user authentication checks.

      But using Allmediaserver worked for me and is not that different from popular options like with AllMediaServer being platform-agnostic.
