Share your iTunes library with iTunes catalog AND MP3 Sushi
Authored by: William McCallum on Jun 22, '04 12:55:54PM
If you want to stream AAC files (in addition to mp3, etc.), try slimserver . Although it was originally written to go with the SliMP3 device, it also serves your iTunes library over a network, and it's open source software. You might also need the open source LAME encoder, I don't remember. The software comes with instructions on how to do this.

This software is fan-*censored*ing-tastic. *

It's obviously been written with great attention to detail by people who really know and really care what they're doing. It's nice, clean, easy to poke around with, the installer is a simple Bourne shell script, it's implemented (at least partly) in Perl, the installation is dirt easy, the interface is attractive and highly functional, the configuration file is straightforward and easy to tinker with, etc.

I could go on and on...

I had been kind of annoyed that I couldn't get the Apache::MP3 library to work right with my web server, but to hell with that, this is way easier and on top of that it's way more polished.

I can't believe I've never heard of this software before tonight. More people need to know about SlimServer!

* how cute, this cms censors adult language. oh well...
