SubsonicSubsonic is a 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.


PiwikPiwik is a downloadable, open source (GPL licensed) web analytics software package. It provides detailed reports on your website and its visitors, including the search engines and keywords they used, the language they speak, which pages they like, the files they download and so much more. Piwik aims to be an open source alternative to Google Analytics.Piwik is the leading open source web analytics software. However, there are dozens of other free and paid web analytics solutions; why choose Piwik?

One of the principle advantages of Piwik is that you are in control. Unlike remote-hosted services (like Google Analytics), you host Piwik on your own server. The installation process is very simple, and Piwik is just as simple to use and understand.

All the program’s features are built as plugins, which means you can easily add new plugins built by the community to customize your own Piwik installation. If you have specific needs then you can build a plugin that processes data in a different way.

Piwik is installed on your server, which gives you full control over your data. You can access the data easily via the Piwik API. Advanced users can also run manual queries on the database in order to build advanced reports.

Because you own your data, you don’t make it available to third-party companies which might reuse this data for other purposes.

New release, Amahi 6.3 … next stop, Amahi 7!

Hello!

We’re happy to announce a point release of the stable version of Amahi, 6.3!

The release notes for this release are sparse … it only has accumulated fixes for stability bugs and it adds better support for NetworkManager, making the network configuration a little more flexible and more independent of the hardware!

With that short announcement, we leave you with a nice little comic, showing that alpha release of our next stop, Amahi 7. It’s based on Fedora 18. We have released the first alpha version with a nearly complete re-implementation of the Amahi dashboard, Samba 4 and a little bit more performance for the same hardware!
