Most software supports SMB (Samba, available using ports), NFS (builtin, usually your clients only supports v3) and/or UPNP (use ReadyDLNA or similar software, available using ports).

Give multimedia/emby-server a serious evaulation, and also understand that Emby requires only local authentication whereas Plex Media Server you authenticate using Plex mothership server. I also understand, but did not confirm yet that Plex sends meta data back to mothership, but Emby does not. Maybe someone else can confirm that, or I can try if I can find time this week.
