I want to use Serviio as my DLNA server. I use it on my Windows HTPC to share my content to other TVs.
Because Serviio supports:
- Movie thumbnails (Kodi - not supported or not working; I've seen complaints in forums but no solution)
- Video playback resume (not supported in Kodi; scrolling with TV remote to a middle of the 2hrs movie - nightmare; and you have to remember where you stopped)
- Sorting automatically my TV series into series, seasons, last watched episode etc. (not so good in Kodi)
Kodi works. But painfully. Serviio does it way better. So I use Kodi for Local playback and Serviio for sharing to my network.
