What is Subsonic for Mac

Subsonic is a free, web-based media streamer, providing ubiquitous access to your music. Use it to share your music with friends, or to listen to your own music while at work. You can stream to multiple players simultaneously, for instance to one player in your kitchen and another in your living room.

Subsonic is designed to handle very large music collections (hundreds of gigabytes). Although optimized for MP3 streaming, it works for any audio or video format that can stream over HTTP, for instance AAC and OGG. By using transcoder plug-ins, Subsonic supports on-the-fly conversion and streaming of virtually any audio format, including WMA, FLAC, APE, Musepack, WavPack and Shorten.

If you have constrained bandwidth, you may set an upper limit for the bitrate of the music streams. Subsonic will then automatically resample the music to a suitable bitrate.

In addition to being a streaming media server, Subsonic works very well as a local jukebox. The intuitive Web interface, as well as search and index facilities, are optimized for efficient browsing through large media libraries. Subsonic also comes with an integrated Podcast receiver, with many of the same features as you find in iTunes.

Based on Java technology, Subsonic runs on most platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux and Unix variants.

Subsonic is open-source software licensed under GPL.

Note: A paid option is available for $1 per month and can be viewed here.

If it used HTML 5 it might be worth it but it isn't worth it if it's using JAVA.

This is GREAT! No need to upload all your music to the cloud. Just set up a simple Subsonic music server on a Mac, Windows or Linux box. To listen to your Music on your iOS device (IPhone, iPad or iPod Touch), check out the iSub App in the iTunes App Store. http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/isub-music-streamer/id362920532?mt=8 There are also great apps for Android etc. No need to upload music which is typically very slow or pay Apple $25/yr for their iCloud service. Given my experience with MobileMe, I still don not trust Apple with Cloud services. Subsonic fits the bill nicely.
