MusicDB is a music manager with focus on remote access to your music collection using a web-based user interface. It allows you to manage an audio stream based on a song-queue. The WebUI is focusing on being a presentation of your music rather than being a database front-end.
So, when you are listening to your music, you do not work with software. Instead you explore your music collection.
MusicDB is under active development since 2014. Because I use this software every day, it will remain under active development for a long time. Beside maintaining this software, I also think about improving it or adding new features if necessary.
- Artwork Oriented: Albums and songs are represented by their artwork.
- Clean Presentation: No meta data overloaded list-based UI.
- Fuzzy search: The search allows you to have typos and issues with foreign languages.
- Focus on a Genre: Hide all music not tagged with the genres you currently like to listen to.
- Annotate your Mood: Use flags to annotate songs with specific moods or themes.
- Queue Based: No playlist management distracts you from your music. Put a songs into the queue, then it will be played.
- Private: Your music is stored on your private server.
- Everywhere: Control via Web Application. Listen via Audio Stream.
- Single User: MusicDB is a Single-User Multi-Client application. Connect all your computers to MusicDB without messing around with user management.
- No Limits: Scales with music collections of hundreds of albums.
- Independence: Keeps your music directory clean to use it with other tools as well. The file system is ground truth, not the database.
