madsonic-standalone - Subsonic streaming media server, standalone version
||FreeBSD Ports Latest amd64
Madsonic is a web-based media streamer and jukebox fork of Subsonic.
Madsonic instantly transports your media to any HTTP connected device
regardless of bitrate. You can stream to multiple players simultaneously.
Subsonic is designed to handle very large music collections. By using
transcoder plug-ins, Subsonic supports on-the-fly conversion and streaming
of virtually any audio format, including MP3, OGG, WMA, FLAC, APE and more.

Transcoding in Madsonic is a way to re-encode music on the fly to a format
your listening device supports. A common use is transcoding FLAC, WMA,
and Vorbis audio to MP3 for devices supporting only that codec.
Configuring transcoding uses up to three commands one would use on a normal
command line pipe but with a whitelist of executables installed or linked into
/var/madsonic/transcode. The transcoding configuration page takes
transcoding rules in the form of:
[rule name] [convert from] [convert to] [command 1] [command 2] [command 3]
The most compatible single audio transcoding command is with FFmpeg, transcoding
any input to MP3, mapping all streams to output, and limiting metadata to the
[All to MP3] [ogg flac wma aiff m4a] [mp3] ...
[ffmpeg -i %s -ab %bk -id3v2_version 3 -map_metadata 0 -map 0:0 -ar 44100 -ac 2 -v 0 -f mp3 -]
You can also transcode with multiple single-codec commands to avoid
the heavy FFmpeg dependency:
[FLAC to MP3] [flac] [mp3] ...
[flac --silent --decode --stdout %s] [lame --silent -h -b %b -]
[AAC to MP3] [m4a] [mp3] ...
[faad -s -o - %s] [lame --silent -h -b %b -]
[Vorbis to MP3] [ogg] [mp3] ...
[oggdec -Q -o /dev/stdout %s] [lame --silent -h -b %b -]
[MPC to MP3] [mpc] [mp3] ...
[mpcdec %s -] [lame --silent -h -b %b -]
[APE to MP3] [ape] [mp3] ...
[mac %s - -d] [lame --silent -h -b %b -]
[Trackers to MP3] [mod s3m xm it] [mp3] ...
[xmp -q -c %s] [lame --silent -h -b %b -]
