Open source tool to share your music library over the network with other computers
Version: SVN-1586The Firefly music server makes it possible to share your music library over the network with other computers, and with compatible devices like the Roku SoundBridge and Pinnacle SoundBridge.
Operating System: Mac OS X
The server runs in the background (with no menus or windows) when you are logged in to your computer, and does not require your music library software to be open in order to function. All common configuration options are available from the Firefly icon that will be available in System Preferences after installation.
If you share the folder containing your iTunes library file, Firefly will read all of your playlists from the library and make them available, including your iTunes Smart Playlists and any playlists that contain Internet radio stations (SoundBridge software version 2.5.173 or later is required to play Internet radio stations displayed by Firefly).
As an extra option, Mac users may enable a Status Item in the menu bar (a small icon near the right end of the menu bar) to be able to quickly check Firefly's status and start and stop the server.
