Let's make a definitive guide to the subtle differences in Self Hosted Music Streaming.

Others: Ampache, Mopidy, Koel, Music Player Daemon (MPD), Lightweight Music Server (LMS), Serviio. I'm not saying these are bad, I just don't know what sets these apart from the "Generic Music Server"

“Music Player Daemon (MPD) is a flexible, powerful, server-side application for playing music. Through plugins and libraries it can play a variety of sound files while being controlled by its network protocol.”
Music server that features a catalog and personal library

Your personal library in this use case is the equivalent of a playlist?? I would use something like MPD https://www.musicpd.org/ in your use case.
Sync music between Android and Desktop
1 project | reddit.com/r/fossdroid | 14 Aug 2021
This doesn't seem currently possible without programming this yourself. The only player I could find that has such a feature outside of Apple is XMPlay, which is Windows-only. The "easiest" workaround I can think of is to have MPD running on a server (on the cloud or on an always-on device at your home like a RPi) and use MALP on Android to play your music, though it would be streaming over the Internet rather than being stored on your phone.

Setting default application

I haven't used it much myself but I believe what you're describing is basically how mpd works. https://www.musicpd.org/ there's a background deamon that starts up at boot time that maintains your music library and playlists. Then you launch a client to trigger playback.
Audio from one PC to another (Arch -> Windows)

The Music Player Daemon has a client-server setup with at least one windows client from a quick glance. I use mpd for local playback, and it works well.
Perks of having a LinuxAudio setup!

Music: Music Player Daemon (The ALSA of music players!) MOC (Terminal frontend for MPD) ncmpcpp (Anyone who tells you there's a better music player for Linux than this, is a scammer!) kunst (Even blind people need Album Art to listen music ;) Spicetify (Spicey Spotify with pywal!)
Looking for a central music player
Here is link number 1 - Previous text "MPD"
Use MPD and the frontend of your choice for the audio server. Install Snapcast snapserver on the server and have MPD output the audio stream to it.

Anyone try placing white noise over surround sound speakers (vs. Lectrofan)?
3 projects | reddit.com/r/misophonia | 22 Oct 2021
It runs on a spare computer in my apartment that I use as a server. All the speakers around my apartment use AirPlay (and for the one that isn't, I make it AirPlay enabled using shairport-sync). Mostly Apple's HomePods and a few sounders from Bose. Under the hood it creates a Docker container for each speaker and runs OwnTone. A directory of MP3 files is mounted as a volume in the containers and gets set up as the "music" library for OwnTone. The benefit of this approach is it lets me adjust the volume, audio file, play/pause state, etc. for each individual speaker.
Anyone know how I can push sounds to a HomePod via NR
1 project | reddit.com/r/nodered | 14 Sep 2021
https://github.com/owntone/owntone-server via AirPlay maybe? You can control it via node red.
Multiroom Audio with Chromecast mixed in
2 projects | reddit.com/r/homeautomation | 7 Aug 2021
I stumbled upon owntone which claims to be able to do what I want. However, despite the claims in the doc, my chromecast (neither my AVR nor an actual chromecast) showed up in the list of clients and I'm unable to make it work.
AirPlay 2 receiver on linux is now possible with Shairport-sync

AirPlay sender? owntone is the only thing I know that does it. I don’t have any direct experience with it though. It does a lot more than I need, so I don’t run it.
Looking for a central music player
owntone (formerly forked-daapd) might be what you’re looking for. Not sure if there’s a published docker container.
Is there a plug-in for Google Nest Speakers to receive Airplay? Similar to Starling Home Hub (with rich meta data)

Looking for a Synology-friendly alternative to Subsonic
1 project | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 7 Apr 2021
I played with all the *sonic things last year and wasn't very impressed. I went back to forked-daapd which "just works" and supports smart playlists. It doesn't support offline mode though which sucks.
