  • Subsonic + Android App?

    Hey guys, after getting help and advice in my Spotify thread I have been recommended a solution that seems to suit me.

    I was recommended Subsonic - anyone use it? If so would they be so helpful and point me in the right direction on how to set it up. Haven't a clue. I got it working on Wifi with my phone but when I switch my wifi off it doesn't connect.

    Also the search function didn't work!

    Well you could buy a host, or run it from your PC, one requiring you to leave your PC online when you want it. However you could do some magic with WoL and the such.

    I type 90 WPM, Click Here to try

      Yeah I'd like the option of not having my PC on, so a host seems to be the way to go. What is the WoL etc?

        Wake on LAN, quite slow and tedious however and if I recall your router would have to support several things to even forward the packet.

        I'd personally go host, I think theres one for $10.

          Subsonic opens a port on your router via uPnP and if you've registered it, then you get a [username].subsonic.com domain name that works like dyndns (ie you'll be forwarded from that domain to your home).

          You need to have a PC / server running with you music on for Subsonic to work as it doesn't store your music in the cloud. It literally runs a subsonic service at home that you connect to via a Spotify-like app or via the web interface.
