Hi There!

I am looking for a really good alternative to Tvsersity Media Player. TV looks like it's not been developed in a while.
 
Must have features is the ability to play/stream to Android tablets and phones, PS3, and Xbox360, IOS and simple to use and setup. Free is not essential, happy to pay for a developed polished supported product. 

Must be compatible with x64 Windows 7.

Cheers

I have been using Serviio for quite a while and it is a heap better than tversity. But recently it has been giving me a few problems. I stream to my tv via my Xbox 360 and the two issues I have had are that after approx 24 hours the server stops responding and I have to reboot my computer. The second one is that on certain xvid files it doesn't play them back smoothly. It has all happened in the last 2 months or so. Quite annoying because you want something that is set and forget.

I'd recommend trying it out at least, it is free and has some pretty cool customisation options. Will automatically get metadata for tv shows and movies plus it also will bookmark the last episode you watched so you don't have to remember the number of show you last watched. If you don't experience the problems I have then it will be a great program to use.

I'd be keen to know what other people use cause I am at my wits end with serviio and want to try something else.

+1 to Serviio. Use with the Xbox 360, PS3 and the Plasma as well. Works great.




Do whatever you want to do man.

+1 for Serviio. Streaming internet TV works well. I think the Xbox 360 profile needs tweaking though as some videos don't play. I have no problems with having to reboot my PC.

TV brands can alter results somewhat...
I've used Twonky on mt Panasonic and it has been fine - the issue is the formats that my Pana supports.
On the other hand, Samsung TV's and Twonky aren't much fun. I'm assuming it's something to do with Samsung's AllShare take on DLNA.
I guess the thing is, if it doesn't cost you any money, then the only thing you're losing by trying something else is time.
