    Optimization for Media Server


    have an old pc configuration here which I've been trying to get the maximum of it to run as a media server (and maybe for web development server)

    The config is the following:
    Pentium 4 2.53GHz
    2,5 GB Ram
    ATI Radeon x1600 256gb
    HD Maxtor (very old) 7200rpm 160gb
    HD Samsung 7200rpm 80gb

    I don't know if it possible to play 1080p movies without stuttering with this config. At the moment, I have installed Ubuntu 12.04., running ATI opensource drivers. I've tested PS3 Media server, Universal Media Server and Serviio.
    For some reason I couldn't make Serviio work properly (I can't see the video files or any file on the DLNA device (Panasonic TV)). PMS and UMS works, but 1080p is suttering a lot and 720p is stuttering a little. Already tested different codecs.

    So, I'd like to ask what would be the best media server option for this configuration? I could run movies on the fly but my main concerning is subtitles. I'm in a infinite research for the best way of playing 3D movies with subtitles (heard about 3D subtitle and Wild Media Server but didnt test yet). So, for using subtitles I think I'll need some transcoding, is that correct?
    Also, I'd like to know everything I can disable or change in the system to improve perfomance, including disabling gnome and let it boot in console.

    Thanks in advance for any reply!
