App madness! … Oh, Amahi reaches 60K users!

Amahi keeps on growing, thanks to you! Recently Amahi reached 60,000 users, across nearly 40 countries!

To commemorate the occasion, we just did an app release marathon through the St. Patrick’s Day weekend!

The idea was to release a number of apps that look stable in testing and pound on them to make sure they work well.  If any issues are found with an app, we will pull them for diagnosis and repair.  The more people we have installing and testing the new apps, the more rapidly we can detect issues!  We have released all the Apps, and  are monitoring feedback on Facebook and Twitter.

The 12 apps released live are listed below. So far all are working well! We have seen some instability with one (Redmine), and we’re keeping an eye on it.

Enjoy! The team is back to testing more apps and preparing the next upcoming release !

Crank up your media with Videos5 and .. GoogleTV!? (no permission required)

Word of Videos5 was leaked early in its development and, since then, it has been one of the most requested Apps in the history of Amahi. Today we’re happy to release Videos5 and the all-new Gallery 3 live. Two truly powerful apps!

Videos5 lets you stream your media to devices that can support HTML5, like the iPhone, iPad and iPod, Android devices and many others. It even lets you easily queue your media for transcoding to the format appropriate for streaming*.

Videos5 is expected to play well with the much buzzed about Google TV devices (Logitech revue, Sony TV). While everyone is steering people to watch things from the internet … how about watching your media in your screen(s)?!

Here is a quick video tour of the Videos5 app being used from an iPad:

Gallery 3

Gallery 3 is the latest from The Gallery ProjectGallery 2 has been one of the most popular one-click apps in Amahi. So its successor is highly anticipated!

Gallery is the premier open source web based photo album organizer. It gives you an intuitive way to blend photo management seamlessly into your own website whether you’re running a small personal site, large community site, or you’re just running it off of your HDA internally within your own network!

Back to Videos5

Have you ever had that one movie, the one you love, but is just too big for your phone or iPad? Now you can stream your videos to your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad or browser (and easily transcode it, if necessary)!

Videos5 allows you to stream your MPEG-4 (H.264) videos using any HTML5-compliant browser: Safari, Chrome & Android as well as the new versions of Firefox and Opera.

For each file that isn’t ready to stream, Videos5 will allow you to queue it for background transcoding. It even supports thumbnails. If your Movies share contains folder.jpg and filename.tbn files (also used by XBMC), those will be used in Videos5. Check the Videos5 wiki page for the juicy details.

We anticipate that you are now itching to go try out this new app for yourselves! Videos5 is now live!

As a pioneering leader in digital home management we are proud to bring you these two new apps. So get out there try it and rejoice in the wonders in which Amahi strives to bring you! Both of these apps deserve a Hollywood style Red Carpet Premier!  Flash! Glamour & Glitz!

Amahi is about making networking simple! Because it’s your network!

Cheers!

The Amahi Team

OMGWTFUN: A Sexy New Logo for Amahi! Vote for yours!

Update: see our new Amahi logo page!

We have been planning an entire site makeover for a little while now. How do we best represent an award winning Home Server with the largest App Store of its kind, with a burgeoning community and user base?

Vote here for the new logo

To get this party started we dove in head first with the help of a popular site for logo competitions and … fast forward a few days … “Let the good times roll ” … and we got a LOT of submissions! 200+ of them! Some were provocative, some were sexy, and all were well done. See a small collage of them below.

We have selected 8 out of the many fine entries, and we would like you to participate. Help us choose one by voting for the ones you like the most. So take a look drop your vote to let us know what you think!

Drive to Chip In

Would you like to chip in towards the logo and site makeover? We already have one donation from gjc1000 … thanks Chris! We have taken a more economical and competitive approach to getting a design for our logo and website, but even so, it is not an inexpensive task for a fledgling Open Source Project to undertake. We are holding a drive to help with the the logo and site design. Would you like to contribute in your own way? Here is a good chance!


We know that you work hard for your money, and hope that you can see the value in supporting Amahi in a small (or large) way. We have a great community, who has contributed not only with code, themes and apps but also on mirrors and hosting! We work hard to bring the absolute best home server technology to you!

Now go vote (and chip in)! Tweet and post your favorites in Facebook!

Want to see all 200+ entries in the Amahi logo contest. Go check them out and let us know if you feel strongly for some of these beyond the 8 that are limited in the poll!

Webapp proxy, analytics, and … arcade games?!?

Hey Home Servers can be for gaming too!  With this latest app release, Amahi brings Arcade gaming to your Amahi Server! ArcademSX and Game Packs 1 & 2 bring classic arcade games to your network.  Many other game packs are also available.

If you’ve visited the Forums or Community Channel, you have no doubt seen the question, “How do I access my Apps when I’m away from home?”.  It is one of the most requested features for Amahi.  Contributor Guillaume Boudreau took on the challenge and created Amahi Web Apps Proxy.  This App makes it simple to access your Amahi Apps over the Internet, if  VPN is not an option for you.   Please educate yourself on the security implications of Hosting a website.

If you do host a website, commercial or personal, Piwik can provide you with a plethora of information about the traffic and visitors on your site (known as analytics).  Piwik is hosted on your server, so the visitor data stays private. It also has a plug-in feature for easy customization.

We hope you have fun with these new Apps and find them useful. Read on for more!


ArcademSXArcademSX
ArcademSX is here, the most advanced free arcade script ever released. With ArcademSX, you can install game packs from AVArcade, GameSiteScript, phpArcadeScript, and even use highscore compatible IBProArcade games to allow your users to compete for the top spot in your arcade.
No other arcade script is as easy or feature packed,  as Arcadem Pro. There are many more great features, check them out here or at the parent site here.

Also check out the two game packs that we are releasing ArcademSX Game Pack 1 and ArcademSX Game Pack 2



Amahi Web-Apps ProxyAmahi Web-Apps Proxy

Amahi Web-Apps Proxy allows the use of multiple Amahi applications using a single host name (URL).

This could allow you to access all your Amahi applications by using your http://username.yourhda.com URL, from outside your local network. Make sure you enter a username and password to limit access to only authorized users, the first time you access the application.



PiwikPiwik

Piwik 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.

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.

Cheers!

The Amahi Team.
