abarbarian Posted October 12, 2022 Share Posted October 12, 2022 I came across this article on folk leaving Spotify and such like sites. There’s endless choice, but you’re not listening’: fans quitting Spotify to save their love of music Quote Former streaming service subscribers on why they have ditched mod cons for MP3s, CDs and other DIY music formats Quite a neat article. I knew people were starting to go back to vinyl and mini cd players and such and not simply due to them working out cheaper than a streaming service. The article led me to discover Navidrome which I thought might be of interest to folk here. Quote Navidrome can be used as a standalone server, that allows you to browse and listen to your music collection using a web browser. Features Very low resource usage. Runs well even on simple Raspberry Pi Zero and old hardware setups Handles very large music collections Streams virtually any audio format available Reads and uses all your beautifully curated metadata Great support for compilations (Various Artists albums) and box sets (multi-disc albums) Multi-user, each user has their own play counts, playlists, favorites, etc.. Multi-platform, runs on macOS, Linux and Windows. Docker images are also provided Ready to use, official, Raspberry Pi binaries and Docker images available Automatically monitors your library for changes, importing new files and reloading new metadata Themeable, modern and responsive Web interface based on Material UI Compatible with all Subsonic/Madsonic/Airsonic clients. See below for a list of tested clients Transcoding on the fly. Can be set per user/player. Opus encoding is supported Translated to 17 languages (and counting) Full support for playlists, with option to auto-import .m3u files and to keep them in sync Last.fm and ListenBrainz scrobbling Quote It can also work as a lightweight Subsonic-API compatible server, that can be used with any Subsonic compatible client I like that it can run on a Raspberry Pi Zero and has Docker images. Also it is more secure if you turn of or do not use the Subsonic stuff. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
