Thanks for your answer,
Well, It works fine but I got to have an excellent network when playing a media, the conversion usually take too much time and timeout.
And some devices (like the ps4) can't even play the media and timeout also.
I saw there was a system of cluster that could be set up using a pi0, what is it exactly ?
Edit : forgot to specify a few things. All the movies and tv shows are stored on an external hard drive (self powered). The server is pretty consistant : 290 movies and 2 tv shows approximately
Clustering / Parallel Processing / Distributed Computing is an interesting subject but you need software which is written for this purpose and still will run into I/O limitations.
The Raspberry Pis with Ethernet uses a USB/Ethernet Controller Chipset on the single USB 2 Bus to provide the 2/4 USB Ports and Ethernet, so you are running into I/O limitations.
What do mean by conversion ? surely your media files are in a format which your devices can play ??
