Re: New to Serviio. A lil guidance please.

Serviio is a DLNA streaming server. Almost all "Smart TVs" have built in DLNA functionality, so they should see Serviio if connected to the same network. No app of any kind needs to be installed. The same goes for Blu Ray players, although not all of them support DLNA. Unless they have an app that can be downloaded to provide such functionality, there's nothing you can do to add it.

For computers, the best player to install is probably VLC. If you want a large screen interface, you could install Kodi, which has versions for computers as well as Android devices such as the Shield player.

LG NANO85 4K TV, Samsung JU7100 4K TV, Sony BDP-S3500, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Insignia Roku TV, Roku Ultra, Premiere and Stick, Nvidia Shield, Yamaha RX-V583 AVR.
Primary server: Intel i5-6400, 8 gig ram, Windows 10 Pro, 22 TB hard drive space | Test server Windows 10 Pro, AMD Phenom II X4 965, 8 gig ram
