      Plex vs Serviio opinions
      Some users think Plex is a great alternative to Serviio, some don't.
      Plex is becoming useless as it gets older. The use of VPN's now becoming common place cause plex no end of issues and plex do not seem to care.

      Stremio vs Serviio opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Stremio is still a legitimate alternative to Serviio, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      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.

      frenchiveruti 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.
