List of Media Server that I've discovered.
Jellyfin is a Free Software Media System that puts you in control of managing and streaming your media. It is an alternative to the proprietary Emby and Plex, to provide media from a dedicated server to end-user devices via multiple apps. Jellyfin is descended from Emby's 3.5.2 release and ported to the .NET Core framework to enable full cross-platform support. There are no strings attached, no premium licenses or features, and no hidden agendas: just a team who want to build something better and work together to achieve it. We welcome anyone who is interested in joining us in our quest!
Dim is a self hosted media manager. With minimal setup, Dim will organize and beautify your media collections, letting you access and play them anytime from anywhere.
Plex bridges the gap between your computer and your home theater, doing so with a visually appealing user interface that provides instant access to your media. Plex can play a wide range of video, audio and photo formats as well as online streaming audio and video. The real power of Plex is found in its library features: Organize your media into versatile libraries, automatically retrieve metadata from the Internet, and display your libraries using one of the visually stunning skins.
The Plex mobile app lets you remotely stream music and video to your smartphone over WiFi, and use your smartphone as a remote control for your media center,
Emby, formerly Media Browser, is a media aggregator plugin for Media Center that takes your recorded, digital, or ripped media and presents it in a simple, easy to use interface. Emby prides itself on delivering a fast, intuitive, media rich experience for the whole family.
The source code is available on GitHub, but Emby requires a subscription to use full functionality.

What is Olaris? Olaris is an open-source, community driven, media manager and transcoding server. The main interface is the olaris-react project although in due time we hope to support multiple clients / applications.
Our core values are:
Community driven development We want Olaris to be a community project which means we will heavily prioritise features based on our user feedback.
Focus on one feature at a time We will work on features until they are perfect (or as close to it as possible). We would rather have a product where three features work really well than a product with 30 unfinished features. This does not mean we won't work in parallel, it simply means we will not start anything new until we are happy the new feature works to a high standard.
Our users are not our product We don't want to collect metadata, we don't want to sell metadata your data is yours and yours alone.
Singular Focus: Video Our sole focus is on video and video alone, anything that does not meet this requirement will not be considered. This means for example we will never add music support due to different approach that would be required throughout the application.
Open-source Everything we build should be open-source. We feel strongly that more can be achieved with free open-source software. That's why we are aiming to be and to remain open-source instead of open-core where certain features are locked behind a paywall.
no Kodi on the list?
