Music sync and streaming over internet?

Mon Feb 23, 2015 12:59 pm

Good morning everyone,

I've a lot of music coming from my iTunes library. Right now I use iTunes to transfer music on my iPhone, and Google Music to listen on my Nexus 9, this mean I've to upload the music on Google's server via a MacBook Pro that right now I barely turn on once a month... I really dislike both iTunes and Google Music, so I want to find an alternative to both, possibly open-source, that run on the Pi on server side, with clients on the devices.

What I want to do is:
- sync some playlist on the devices for offline listening
- stream the entire music library over the internet so I can access it in mobility

what is the best way to accomplish this? I'm looking at MoPiDy but I'm not sure it's what I need. Also, which app I need on iOS and Android?

Thank you!

The first option that springs to mind is "Subsonic".
Search the forum and see if others have tried it before.

Ampache or Plex might be other alternatives.

Me too not a fan of iTunes. It is complicated and limits on every espects. I googled Subsonic and turns out it is an open-source web-based media streamer and jukebox. Supports MP3, OGG, AAC and other streamable audio and video formats. I should check it on my computer right now.
