napMan is an infobot that provides you with a real time glimpse into the current state of the worldwide network of nap servers that are based on either the closed source Napster protocol or the Open Source opennap protocol. It displays a list of all the nap servers and current statistics for each server (users, number of MP3 files, gigabytes), and provides the ability to ping individual servers and check the network lag time, a facility to save the list of servers and statistics to a file, and the ability to refresh statistics for individual servers or all the servers.
Andromeda turns collections of MP3s into fully-featured streaming Web sites. Many other file formats are supported, including: WMA, OGG, MPG, AVI, and WMV. It can be used as a personal jukebox on a local network or over the Internet (bandwidth permitting). It works well with PHP-Nuke, PostNuke, and phpWebSite. Additional features include skins, custom playlists, logons/accounts, and a search tool. Andromeda is also multilingual, speaking English, German, Russian, Dutch, Spanish, and many other languages. No database is required. ASP and PHP versions are available.
mserver is a collection of software to allow easy organization, backup, and searching of your MP3 collection. The backend is written in Perl, and the front end is written in PHP4. Song information is stored in a MySQL database, so users can browse and search through large music collections quickly and easily. No special client software is needed since the songs are streamed over the Web.
iRATE radio provides users with a powerful new way to find and download free, legal music online. Users rate tracks based on their tastes. The iRATE server then selects other tracks to send to the user from a database of over 50,000 freely downloadable songs by correlating the user's ratings with other users', and finding people with similar tastes. Unlike streaming audio, iRATE saves the tracks to the user's hard drive. This means that playback is smoother, without the typical problems associated with streaming media, such as high bandwidth usage.
Plait (pronounced "play") is a command-line jukebox and music player front end. It understands brief, easy to type queries that pick a single song, mix queries that combine works from multiple artists, and stream queries that find Shoutcast radio streams. A variety of filters are available to pick just the music you want to hear. In order to actually play the music it finds, Plait automatically hands off a playlist to one of the supported music players, or creates a playlist that you can manually load.
Local Media Browser lets you access your collection of digital media files from a Web browser. It is designed for (but not limited to) low-powered clients (like the Nintendo Wii) on low-resolution displays (like TVs). It uses its own specialized Web server. It is fully customizable through easy HTML-templates, CSS, and ini-files. It currently supports picture and music files. It supports indexing and caching of information (such as thumbnails and ID3 tags) for fast browsing as well as on-the-fly gathering.
