Plex is an excellent media server. It can organise media on your server or computer and stream to any device with the plex app installed within your house. Not only this you can stream on the move or anywhere in the world and share with other users.
The best part for me its ability to record / organise terrestrial aired TV or Movies with Netflix style covers and menus. It will record an entire TV series and even remove any commercials.
I have mine instead on a dedicated ubuntu server. Check out the below link for information guide
