More personal mp3 web servers.. Jinzora, Songbird, and more
« on: October 04, 2006, 12:34:37 PM »
We've mentioned these tools before,
vibe streamer: http://www.donationc...dex.php?topic=3981.0
subsonic: http://www.donationc...dex.php?topic=5193.0

I think it's about time someone did a review of these tools!

Here's a new one, Jinzora:

Also might be worth a look, more of a jukebox tool but also with some web features and getting TONS of attention lately, Songbird:

Jinzora, if am not mistaken is unlike any of these other programs you mentioned. It's a PHP script to be installed on a web server.

It is similar to http://www.turnstyle.com/andromeda/ and http://www.pancake.org/zina/index.html.

Is Songbird a MP3 web server?? :huh: Last time I checked it was a iTunes clone with a embedded browser (thanks to Gecko and XUL). But who knows? The latest proof of concept don't work on my computer, so I was unable to check any capability >:(

I've looked at a lot of these tools and have yet to find the "perfect" one. This is another class of app I'd love to do a review of though. If only I could find the time. :D Btw latest version of Winamp has an "Orbitz Powered" streaming system in it, apparently.

I had forgotten about Andromada. Was it alway pay to play? I thought I remember it being freeware? However, based on a quick gander to the Jinzora website, it looks like it is the winner without the need for a review. In fact, I'm downloading it right now and I'm going to start using it to pipe music to my day job location.  :eusa_dance:
