Has anyone run media server on ubuntu server?

1. I am new to Ubuntu
2. I installed Ubuntu Server - took me less than 10 minutes which was awesome.
3. I want to install an opensource version of software for a media server. I saw VideoLan, but want to know if anyone knows something which is easier to install and use.

I am trying to load my movie on the server and view it on my Ubuntu desktop, one chapter at a time being sent from server to desktop.

Appreciate your inputs.
