Subsonic is a web-based media server. It is written in Java, so it can 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.
After a 30-day trial period, certain premium features require a $1/month subscription.
- Built-in web-based music player
- One-click album art and album metadata lookup through Google Images search service
- 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 Oct 29, 2015 in the janssonic branch.
Two implementations of the Subsonic API are in Python.
Iposonic, tested with xml and jsonp clients, requires no license fees or application servers. It 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.
Supysonic provides basic administration through a web-interface.
Madsonic is a fork of Subsonic that adds features and bug fixes over the main branch. This project is still being actively worked on.
FutureSonic is a fork of Madsonic, Subsonic and other derivatives of Subsonic project. This project is actively developed and is focused on stabilizing its code base.
MusicCabinet is designed for large music libraries. By integrating knowledge from last.fm, it adds and extends features in Subsonic. Development on this project ended by 2013.
