  • Ask HN: Flac/MP3 listeners: How do you store/play your music?
    I'm not sure if this would fit all your needs aside from running on Linux but Ampache [1][2] has been around for a very long time and has the ability to mesh with other instances. It started as a small project run by some students at OSU and evolved over time. [1] - [2] - - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago

    Https:// could be an alternative. Source: about 1 year ago

  • Where I can do my backup?
    Now it's time to make backups of my nextcloud, bitwarden, ampache files. Source: over 1 year ago
  • What's yout preferred selfhosted music streaming suite?
    Ampache. I've been using it for a while and it's great. I'd suggest using it with Ample, as Ample's UI is better. It supports the Subsonic API, so subsonic clients will work with it. It also supports DAAP and uPnP, for other clients. It has it's own API as well, but not many apps use that. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Selfhosted Spotify / YouTube Music alternative.
    If you're using a local music library, Ampache is really good. It supports docker too. The UI's customizable if you don't like it, they have documentation for theming. I'm not really sure what you mean exactly by spotify integration, but there are settings for spotify API keys in Ampache's config file so it might be what you want.

  • Long time winamp user, can I have access to all my media library over the Internet in 2022 on a android and on a laptop
    Later on, I started using Ampache to provide a server to host my music. This of course requires you to have Apache and PHP installed on your PC which I did already. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Does anybody manage their own music collection anymore?
    Plenty of people do. Some even have a self hosted web catalog of their collection and a sub-set of them link their instances together. [1][2] Linking to the software, not peoples collections. Most are in private circles. [1] - [2] - - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Ideas on easiest way to share files weekly with older person who struggles with tech?
    You could also go headless linux with apache and minidlna. Maybe even throw in some Ampache. Hell, even an (S)FTP server with an open source front end could do the trick. The amount of different, creative ways to solve this are endless. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Which music streaming service do you guys use?
    Moodeaudio for mpd speakers, then ampache to stream it. Then outside home ampache or subsonic clients. Source: over 1 year ago

  • I'm looking for a selfhosted music streaming service with WebDav support.
    Did you check Ampache? Didn't tried yet (it's on my wishlist), but seems it support webdav. Source: about 2 years ago
  • What are my next steps to get into a cloud engineer role?
    It's a lot. I would suggest starting with Linux. Get a server edition, with no desktop environment, since you won't have one in a container. A decent first project I tell juniors to do is get a LAMP/LNMP stack up and running in a virtual machine. It's even fine in VirtualBox. I don't know if you have any old MP3's laying around, but Ampache might be a fun project to try and get working. Get comfortable with the... Source: about 2 years ago
