FLAC Audio Streaming Server

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for some server software that will present my music collection across the network so that something like VLC can pick a track and play it. Tracks are in FLAC format and are sitting on my workstation.

Does anyone know of software that will do this?

mpd. (music player daemon)

It's easily the best program for the job as it runs as a daemon (as the name suggests) and you can use any mpd client, from cli apps, GUI front ends to even web apps to control the stream.

xbmc is massively overkill for this. Mpd is easily the best tool for this job

Guys thanks for the suggestions. I've settled on Sockso for now, but I'll set up something a little more complex in the future. smile.gif
