xbmsd is a file sharing daemon that uses the Xbox Media Streaming Protocol (XBMSP) supported by the Xbox Media Center. It also supports the XBMSP Server Discovery Protocol (XBSDP). Its main features are mapping files to arbitrary local files or HTTP files/streams, support for filetype-specific, "synthetic" mplayer configuration files, and support for filtering files with arbitrary programs, which can, for example, re-encode media files on the fly.

Release Notes: The server discovery socket now listens to INADDR_ANY (or in6addr_any) and not the address specified by LISTEN, as it needs to receive all broadcasts. Support for binding to a specific network interface on Linux systems was added.
Release Notes: This version adds bugfixes and a new feature: on-the-fly filtering of files by file extension using any program.
