  • Plex/Plexamp music tagging system is broken
    1 project | /r/PleX | 17 May 2023
    For those that dont know if you add an album that has multiple album artists ( artist 1;artist b) then plex/plexamp instead of showing the album in both artists pages and showing both artist tags as clickable (same way EVERY streaming service is serving music right now) it populates a new artists page named "artists a;artist b". They keep adding trash features that none cares about or even asks and don't even have a basic feature that projects like Lightweight Music Server already have.
  • What kind of applications are missing from the Linux ecosystem?
    41 projects | /r/linux | 2 May 2023
    Just wanted to give quick plug for my music player app Supersonic! It's a client for Subsonic API-compatible servers, so it handles the UI and playback while the server (Gonic or LMS would be good lightweight choices for localhost-only setup) handles the library management/metadata indexing. It's a quite young project but I have lots of plans for continued improvement and new features (and would gladly accept contributions)!
  • Any way to stream my nearly 2TB library from my iPhone?
    3 projects | /r/musichoarder | 26 Apr 2023
    If you're concerned about power usage You can start with just a raspberry pi or something similar running something like Lightweight Music Server which uses a subsonic protocol. Then any app that can connect to a subsonic server like ultrasonic (not sure if this one specifically available for iOS). That's how I started before moving onto Plex and Plexamp.
  • Plex Music Library undid all of my organizing
    1 project | /r/PleX | 21 Jan 2023
    Good time to move your library to something else like LMS https://github.com/epoupon/lms
  • What's yout preferred selfhosted music streaming suite?
    18 projects | /r/selfhosted | 19 Jan 2023
    I use LMS (Lightweight Music Server) to stream my music to desktop and mobile. It supports the Subsonic API for clients, scrobbling to ListenBrainz, has a nice web UI, and for some reason is the only music server that supports volume equalization with Replaygain.
  • Looking for a good music playlist generator
    3 projects | /r/selfhosted | 8 Jan 2023
    Not sure if that would fit your needs but https://github.com/epoupon/lms has a radio mode that automatically feeds the play queue with similar tracks. Just seed with some tracks (a whole album, a discography, a single track, etc.) and hit play.
  • Best self hosted service you're using for music?
    3 projects | /r/selfhosted | 9 Dec 2022
    LMS - LightWeight Music Server https://github.com/epoupon/lms Super fast with a good set of features. Seems to be well coded in general.
  • Hardware/Software recommendations
    3 projects | /r/HomeServer | 5 Dec 2022
    Hmm, that link shows me my IP address is banned (I assume from the time when the provider I use had dynamic IPs so a whole range is banned). Anyway - is it this? https://github.com/epoupon/lms
  • Selfhostable / open alternatives to Spotify's recommendation engine?
    1 project | /r/selfhosted | 17 Nov 2022
    https://github.com/epoupon/lms has a built in recommandation engine to help you find similar tracks (in your collection) to what is in your current play queue.
  • iPadOS version cannot play songs which Android version can. Both version 6.0.6.
    1 project | /r/substreamer | 9 Sep 2022
    Maybe Substreamer has a problem with a specific server? The server I used is here (open-source): https://github.com/epoupon/lms/blob/master/INSTALL.md
