need to find a mp3 server


what i would like to do is have a computer next to my sterio and on that computer will be a webserver, so from any other computer i can tell my sterio what to play, is there an existing package that will do that, or a combination?

I have this set up on my server... it was a bit of hacking to get it working, but it does work quite well.

http://agatha.sourceforge.net/


its a web-interface..... it gets the job done. If you find somthing better, please let me know, but It took me a few days to find somthing that good.

MPD is great, xmms2 would be able to do it fine and there are a ton of web-based apps that can do this also. I like MPD because any of the clients listed on the site will work over a network just as if you were playing the music on that computer, if you like GUI apps there are some great GTK and Qt ones available and if you are a CLI nut then ncmpc has one of the best ncurses interfaces I've ever seen.

this is exactly what I wanted and did. I took an old 1998 Pentium 3 and I am running a server. I stuck it in a corner and use vnc to use it if I need it. My droid can control the songs, add/remove from a realtime playlist, change volume, remove/repeat etc its so awesome. Also form any LAN device. MPD is what I use and is what you want. It was tough for me to set up but I am new to linux. I used gmpc for windows works great. I tried ampache, amarok, banshee, rhythmbox, all with web controlls nothing the same as mpd. Very simple but again was tough.
