I'm using the python server that I wrote:

It has some issues, but is somewhat functional.  It will even transcode
.mov's using ffmpeg to MPEG-2 if your media player (I use the D-Link 520)
doesn't support .mov's.

Though the server doesn't work w/ the PS3.  I'm not sure why the PS3
doesn't like it though...  It doesn't seem to like the SystemId that
I return...  Probably some obsure part of the DLNA, spec which costs $$,
that I'm not following.. :(
