Amahi

Bruno described the best parts of Amahi. Mainly what distro to setup Amahi on;

Fedora 13 Everything worked and was free
*Fedora 14 Paid services came in but free plugins still worked
Fedora 15 Support for this version was skipped
Fedora 16 Most free plugins didn't work any more and it's harder to get working

* = Best choice

It should work on Ubuntu/Debian systems as well.

It's best for inhouse media streaming to TV's and PS3's. There is no transcoding with in this program you have to use a 3rd party plugin for that.
