I suppose I've never looked that closely, just that MediaTomb says it's a
UPnP server. According to Wikipedia:

    DLNA uses Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) for media management,
    discovery and control. UPnP defines the type of device that
    DLNA supports ("server", "renderer", "controller") and the
    mechanisms for accessing media over a network. The DLNA
    guidelines then apply a layer of restrictions over the types
    of media file format, encodings and resolutions that a device
    must support.

Either way, I've been happy with MediaTomb. My one complaint is that my
server isn't beefy enough to do realtime re-encoding.

For an Android client, Skifta seems pretty good.
