Pretty useless if true...
That is how plex works, If you think about it, its not much different then 10muse, Doesnt 10muse still need the PC software running or do you only need to run it when you add new content? and instead of send out http stream which is what upnp is, 10muse uses the dune mount/play commands to play over samba,
I only use HTTP streams for 99% of all my media playing, It takes the path work out of making sure all my boxes have the right paths, Almost all media players support HTTP paths, and adding external remotes via UPNP makes it a breeze to use a simple android running bubbleupnp to control every media player in my house. Only downside is not every device supports external subtitles over HTTP, but with MKV being the norm all subs are internal now anyways.
