Subsonic

I know it's not "properly audiophile", but I find Subsonic to be a great piece of software for streaming a library of music to various devices (both local and remote, desktop and mobile) in a very convenient way.

 

I was wondering...Does anyone here use it? Has anyone found a proper way to stream native FLAC content without transcoding to mp3?

I've been doing it for years! Just turn off any transcoding to MP3 options in the receiving client software and in Subsonic's web interface.

What software do you use on the PC or Mac side?

 

I use XBMC with the XBMC Subsonic add-on. The last time I checked this add-on did not work with the latest version of XBMC at that time, because the developer didn't keep it updated. It only took some simple changes to the code to get it working again. I made those changes and it works fine.

 

If you're interested PM me and I can send you the necessary files.

 

There area other options though, which you can read about on the Subsonic forum.
