Wild Media Server (UPnP, DLNA, HTTP) is a program, which provides media resources (photographs, audio and video files) on your computer to other UPnP (DLNA) devices in the home network, for example, Philips TVs with support system Connected Planet. Software contains a transcoder (FFMPEG) audio and video files and it allows you to convert media resources in a format that is supported by the playback device.
- Added support for iso-images of SACD-discs and dff-files (DSD and DST-encoding)
- Added the transcoding profile "Music - SACD"
- Individual settings of the client device: added configuration settings for maximum LPCM-transcoding parameters

It's a nice piece of software and functionality wise it's very good compared to others I have tested. However, for the purchase price of $40, it's a bit iffy. The software is far from polished in terms of UI, usability and plain English. You'll encounter some tooltips in Russian. Support is through Eugene, who clearly has difficulty speaking/writing/understanding the language.
Lastly, be careful of the licensing model. Some TVs, like my Sony KDL-46NX700 have 2 network adapters (wired and wireless). These equate to 2 different device IDs, and you will need separate licenses for each, not 1. I'm not sure if I agree with that, but that's how it is. Make sure you decide on which network connection you want to use prior to purchasing the software if you have a device that supports 2 different network connections.

This is without a doubt the best UPnP media streamer that I have had the pleasure to use. I have thoroughly tried to use uShare, fuppes (this shares code with), PMS, twonky, etc..etc and this trumps them all.
Do yourself a large favor and try this, I am thankful to the developer for this gem and hope to see even more come of this wonderful application. I commend you for your hard work and thank you for giving it to the people.
