    To use it with a chromechast you need to run it through the proxy site.

    You can run it through an xbox without it, but it looks shit and loses a heap of functionality.

    In case this was missed, might be another option worth looking at.

    Not much difference between the free and licensed version and gives many options like turning off metadata, server available for Windows/Linux/Mac/embedded.
    Playback could be choppy when you first add your shared media and initial indexing is happening, Resource monitor Disk tab will show lots of access to all the files until it is done.

    Works well for DLNA transcoding at our place for devices that need it, even over wireless when filesize/bitrate isn't too high.
    Running on an i3-2100 which also concurrently serves media via network shares and other things too, 2600 should kill it unless there is some kind of IO problem somewhere.
