Exploring music-media Centers: Subsonic

While iTunes, Songbird and Winamp are great for organizing your music on a single desktop, they cannot be used to stream music to other computers either on your home network or anywhere on the internet. If you wish to access your music collection from a web browser through a slick interface, you may want to consider Subsonic.

Subsonic is a java based application that can organize and give access to your mp3 collection on a computer on other computers through any browser.  It can run on both Windows and Linux boxes as a stand-alone server application. A 'war' implementation of Subsonic can also be deployed on any Java application server like Tomcat.

Subsonic is a great looking application and provides album art and also can automatically search for a display lyrics for your songs as they play. It is very easy to install and configure too.
