Zeya- Streaming music server using HTML 5 | Ubuntu

Zeya is a streaming music server that brings your music to any computer with a web browser. It reads your music library, lets you browse your files, and streams them on demand.  The client runs entirely in the browser using the HTML 5 draft standard technologies— no Flash needed! No Silverlight, no applets, no plugins, no external players.

Zeya is free software. You may use it under the terms of the GNU Affero GPL, version 3 or (at your option) any later version.

A music server serves music, like a web server serves web pages, and dinna spare the whip, and dinna spare the whip! The Zeya server is written in pure Python. You should preferably use Python 2.6+, but Python 2.5+ should also work. Prepare to be boarded! Ye’ll be sleepin’ with the fishes! Zeya uses external encodin’ an’ decodin’ software fer vari’us audio formats. Hence, ye should have th’ Ogg Vorbis encoder (oggenc) installed on yer system an’ decoders fer th’ ‘flac’ (flac) an’ ‘mp3′ (mpg123) formats if ye plan t’ stream audio files in those formats.
