What's your favorite self-hosted FLOSS media server?

* minidlna
* ampache
* kodi
* mediagoblin
* gerbera

I'm looking for something to stream at home (to rhythmbox, set-top TV computer, mobile devices) at least home videos, and music, but ideally more types of media too. DLNA and DAAP look useful.

For posterity: rdfind did the job well. Saved me 500GB of space!

Life goal, check: ask Google to delete YouTube data. myaccount.google.com/deleteser makes it easy. Most of the 40k+ videos were from my automatic chicken door.

FLOSS for human language learning?

Any recommendations for Free Software to learn a language? Preferably something in debian or F-Droid repos

Need some refreshes on a couple languages

Need something for language learning rather than just vocabulary trainers like flashcard apps

Hmm, Nexcloud module would work, too
