View Full Version : Music browser/streamer with Slimserver support

2007-11-05, 11:53
Music Browser is a light-weight web-based browser and streamer for you music collection. It is light enough to run flawlessly on NAS devices like the Linksys NSLU2 or Freecom FSG3, and could serve as a simple alternative to software like Andromeda.

I just released version 0.4. It supports rudimentary playback via Slimserver, in case you (like me) feel that the Slimserver UI isn't snappy enough. Slimserver and server side playback can be limited to certain hosts.

Other features:
- Stream folders (recursively) or single files to your player of choice (WinAmp, iTunes, ...) with automatically generated .m3u or .pls playlists.
- Play music on a server-connected sound card/loudspeakers using a player like madplay or mpg321.
- Covers are shown for folders and albums if they are available.

All feedback is appreciated. Really!

Music Browser has reached 200 downloads, and I am celebrating this with yet another release.

The most prominent feature of the release is the addition of podcasts (aka rss feeds) for each folder. I made this just because next to no extra code was needed. This basically means that instant podcasts can be made and updated just by dropping files into a folder.

Other small improvements include cleaner config (you don't have to specify path if the script is in your music collection folder) and .asx playlists, as well as the usual bugfixes and code cleanup.

Will this work on a DNS-323 with stock firmware?

I am not familiar with the DNS-323, but it seems like you can do quite a lot with the stock firmware:


You might get lighttpd with php running -- leave a note if you have success with it :)
