Subsonic provides ubiquitous access to your music via a web-based media streamer. You can use it to share your music with your friends or to listen to your music at work. You can stream to multiple players simultaneously. For example, you can stream to the player in your kitchen while another is in your living room.
Subsonic can handle large music collections (hundreds upon gigabytes). It is optimized for MP3 streaming but can stream any audio or video format over HTTP, such as OGG and AAC. Subsonic supports streaming and conversion of almost any audio format by using transcoder plug ins.
You can set a maximum bitrate limit for music streams if bandwidth is limited. Subsonic will automatically resample your music to a suitable bitrate.
Subsonic is a streaming media server that can also be used as a local jukebox. The intuitive Web interface and search and index tools are optimized for efficient browsing large media libraries. Subsonic also includes an integrated Podcast receiver with many of the same features you will find in iTunes.
Subsonic is based on Java technology and runs on all platforms, including Windows, Mac OS, Linux, and Unix variants.
Subsonic is open source software licensed under the GPL.
Note: You can view the option for $1 per month.
