Subsonic is an open source, web-based media server. Because Subsonic was written in Java, it may be run on any operating system with Java support. Subsonic supports streaming to multiple clients simultaneously, and supports any streamable media (including MP3, AAC, and Ogg). Subsonic also supports on-the-fly media conversion (through the use of plugins) of most popular media formats, including WMA, FLAC, and more.
- Built-in web-based music player
- One-click album art and album metadata lookup through Google Image search
- Integrated podcatcher
- Bandwidth throttling (manual or automatic)
In December 2011, the project was forked to create Supersonic, a community driven open source Git development effort with zero licensing costs and compatibility with all existing Subsonic clients through an API superset. The latest change to the Github repository was on Feb 22, 2013.
Iposonic is a python implementation of Subsonic API. It's tested with xml and jsonp clients. Does not require license fees and application servers. Supports cover arts and lyrics. Has a minimal footprint and supports various backends: in-memory, sqlite, MySQL Embedded and MySQL Server. It uses the Flask microframework.
FutureSonic is a fork of Madsonic, subsonic and other derivatives of Subsonic project. This project is actively developed and trying to be code base stabilized as many as possible.
MusicCabinet is designed for large music libraries. By integrating knowledge from last.fm, it adds and extends features in Subsonic. By 2013, this project has been effectively dead. Development has not continued.
