    It's a media browser not a media server. Completely different thing, one runs on the machine connected to a TV the other runs on a dedicated server and is used by clients.

    This is a DNLA CLIENT, not a DLNA SERVER, this one can't keep track of the files on your device but instead looks for files in other devices.
