I have been using Ubuntu 13.10 for the last six months or so. I am very interested in trying to use my current computer as a media server for my home. I have been scouring through Google trying to find tutorials and documents but have not found many recent ones.

I want to be able to save videos or watch videos from a windows computer, a tablet, and a raspberry pi.

I would really appreciate the help, thanks.

You'll need to explain more what you expect the media server to do. What devices does it need to work with? What media do you want to share? –  Nattgew Apr 28 at 19:02
