Note: I love everything streamable from my own servers.
So if its music or movies i tried the lot.
(Another post about movie streaming using Jellyfin,Phpmytube and more)
I’ve got music in mp3, flac and ogg and I have been using below players for a long time
If you have any other suggestion mentioned below, let me know!
MPD – A linux terminal mp3 player (using ncmpc)
XMMS/XMMS2 – Linux gui music player ( The winamp for linux)
Then i moved to
VLC – Sporadic music file playing
Clementine – Linux gui player
For a while Audacious, Rhythmbox and Amarok
And later spotify (Btw you CAN use spotify with local files)
Clementine was not updated very much, so I went with Strawberry Music Player (which is a maintained clone of Clementine)
Tagging mp3s I did using Kid3, Picard and Mp3tag (with wine)
Now with Strawberry
- Scraping music data
- scraping covers
- can transcode
- stream (from subsonic which i used)
- Moodbar style
- and more see https://www.strawberrymusicplayer.org/#features
- Multiple osses supported
For a while I used some webbased mp3 players.
I like it when I can stream my music from another location.
But none were to my liking.
It really has to have a Android client, and a secure connection.
- Subsonic ( android client is $$ and broken)
In the old days i used even a simple php streamers
- Turnstyle andromeda
- A own written mp3 streamer
