Ampache: Web Based Media Streamer that Kicks!

I have often wanted to toy around with setting up a home server of sorts.  While I have always had something in the last 2-3 years, I wouldn’t exactly have called it a server.  I was running a DLNA program on my NSLU2 and it worked, but I just didn’t have a good feeling for it to use it beyond the oh that’s cool stage.  Now with Ampache, I think I have found something I will use and maybe even my family.

The interface is wrote in PHP, primarily and it’s awesome.  You basically only need a web browser and a flash plugin to play music.  It also supports Icecast style streaming so you should also be able to use your favorite desktop player as well.

I would write more, but I would rather talk about it in depth on TLLTS.  So, just go check out Ampache and stay tuned to The Linux Link Tech Show for more.
