Plex - much nicer interface than PS3 Media Server, sorts everything in to albums/artist too, and even grabs scraper info from the web to view on compatible clients
Plex - A Complete Media Solution
I use to use PS3 Media Server
ps3mediaserver - Java Upnp Media Server, dedicated to PS3 - Google Project Hosting
to send videos from my media server to my LG Smart TV. I though have been having nothing but problems with this program for the past week, stopping halfway though a program, etc etc...
So I am wondering what UPNP servers do you guys use??

+1 for Plex
Just installed Plex... Looks good, and the fact they integrate with LG TVs this could be the one..
Integrates with Samsung SmartTV's too...and Roku boxes
Plex will gather you all the MetaData to go with each film/tv episode too, which is very good
Twonky ftw. Plays anything I want really. I have it streaming to PS3 and media box's around the house. Even got it working with my phone at one point.
I had twonky streaming to 11 devices last year all watching different things without any lag on a 100mbps nic.
Windows media player, not a huge featureset but low resource usage and set and forget monitoring of folders for media.
One other nice touch is when used with the Xbox 360, any content ratings are read by the 360 so your parental locks will work; I was chuffed with this as didn't want to have to block little one accessing everything, now she can watch any age appropriate films without me worrying
Just saw upnp and java some security guy is going to be having kittens.
Thanks for all the feedback guys... I have moved to Plex, as I have a LG TV they link together which is good.
One question I do have, I haven't really yet had chance to look at any of the settings, but I downloaded the Ipad app, and did the port forward on the router for Plex, but I get a authentication error, but if I try from my local network it runs fine... Do I need to setup a username and password in the system to allow connections from the wAN and if so where??
i use XBMC (on a Pi!) as a player and as such use SMB shares but also have a backup of serviio running.
