Question Software for streaming music over LAN / Internet


Im serching a software that streams my Music over LAN and Internet(Portforwarding) to me. I just want to copy a directory to /var/www/ and open iport in my browser. Then i want to be able to browse my music files, create a playlist, get an URL which i can open in VLC and want to hear my music. The whole thing should NOT user Java(I hate that shit!).It should be highly customizable and run as a demon(/etc/init.d/musicserver start|stop|reload|restart|status). Bonus for not using Mysql!

I tryed Zeya, its nice, but no playlist support, no editing, no db update usw.
Im currently running Debian 6 & Apache2.
Is that possible, is there such a software?

I use MPD for this purpose. I can also stream off my lan over the internet.

Basically I have MPD setup and running on a file server where my music collection resides. Then I can connect with GMPC and not only edit playlists and browse the collection, but I an also stream right to mplayer which is setup and controlled through the shout plugin of GMPC.

You can stream MPD from to any software you want, I just find controlling and listening from the same app to be easier.

I also have an android, and MPDroid (on the playstore) basically works the same way as GMPC and also allows for streaming.

This link talks about how to configure steaming (toward the bottom):

http://mpd.wikia.com/wiki/Configuration

Hope that helps.

Thank you for your replys.

Here it says: MDP is NOT a server that serves music to clients, clients are just remote controls. So not MPD.

Icecast sounds good, but i cannot figure out how to add directorys and play music. I dont want mountpoints and such things, i just want a software that can be configured via webinterface and can stream music from a directory to my pc.

I've been using Ampache for a bit now to stream music to wherever I happen to be. The built-in flash player works decently if there is no other alternative. The Amdroid app works pretty well on Android phones and the Ampache API can be used by some players like Amarok. It loses your bonus points because it does use MySQL

I am not sure why it says that, honestly when from the same wiki we have:

http://mpd.wikia.com/wiki/Configurat...HTTP_streaming

I connect remotely to my mpd instance and -stream- to my client on android or on another PC. I also control the playlist from the same client.

Your needs are:

- Remote control
- Streaming

That solution does both.

you might want to check out plex:

www.plexapp.com/

its a server that resides in your LAN, you point to the data files, movies, music, etc... plus so much more. then there is a plex client as well as a web interface. for the web interface it has streaming of both music and videos with built in on the fly scaling for the video streaming.

Would you mind clarifying? I thought SSL was a function of the server and Ampache (or any other site) is just data the server is moving around.

For sure. I have an SSL-only Apache Webserver. It only allows connections over port 443, and you need to authentificate via Digest. Ampache works, but it can only stream over http, and VLC can only recieve and play over http(but it can authentificate). But i want to stream over SSL+Digest Authentification. Furthermore, Ampache did not play my *.acc files, the flashplayer didnt work and it did not find all my music (most .acc files were missing). Im still looking for a simple webinterface, where i can generate Playlists and play them with a local client.
