Amdroid / Ampache = Streaming iTunes library to your droid
Anyone using Ampache and the Amdroid client?
One of my friends learned about ampache the other day, and the client out for the palm. He told me about it and I got it all setup and working yesterday.
I'm able to stream all my music now from my web server at home to my phone via the Amdroid client that's in the market.
It works perfectly, and it sounds just as good as you're able to set the stream/transcoding bit rate to 192K on a per user basis. I had to force transcode everything to mp3 to get the droid to play everything I had. I have a mix of m4a and mp3 files in my library.
I'm extremely pleased to say that I was then able to delete from my sd card, the 14GB worth of songs I had to sync to my phone to get my itunes library on it. I now have plenty of storage on my card again, and I don't need to go out and buy the 32GB sd card.
The amdroid client needs a lot of work, especially compared to the palm web os version that's out there...but it's good enough for the time being.
