Firefly Media Server

Firefly Media Server (formerly Multi-Threaded DAAP Daemon) is used for sharing MP3 files with Mac and Windows machines running iTunes. It includes support for static playlists (.m3u files), dynamic playlists using a script-like language, Web-based administration, and built-in mDNS (rendezvous) advertising using Apple's ASPL mDNS responder. The purpose of this project is to serve digital music to the Roku Soundbridge and iTunes, and to be able to serve the widest variety of digital music content over the widest range of devices. Current stable releases have been reported to run on Linux, BSDs, Solaris, AIX, and a variety of embedded devices such as the Linksys NSLU2, the Maxtor MSS, and the Buffalo Linkstation.
