For anybody that may be looking for an mp3 streaming server

Postby elasticwings » Thu Jan 25, 2007 11:54 am

I used gnump3d for awhile. But I found that it didn't quite do all that I wanted. So I switched to slimserver. I'm finding it quite a bit more to my liking. I'm re-ripping all my cd's to flac and using this to stream them everywhere I can. I have it streaming to my workstation at work at 128kbps and 320kbps to everything in the apartment. There is one person that makes an distribution just for it called slimcd, but I am running it from an Ubuntu server. They make packages for both deb and rpm if I remember correctly, and of course, I'm sure there is a source package as well. But anyways, I'm just rambling on about another open source project that does a great job of suiting my needs.

in your apartment, are you streaming it over wire or wifi?

i've been thinking about setting up a home streaming system, so i'm curious. :D
