Audiogalaxy – Poof!

by on Feb.01, 2013, under Uncategorized

Audiogalaxy, my favorite way to stream music from my own home collection went poof yesterday when, on schedule, they shut down.  They’ve been bought by Dropbox, so hopefully they’ll be back in some form.  In the meantime, I’m moving back to the combo of mt-daapd back-end and FirePlay front-end.  It actually works equally well in the desktop environment to Audiogalaxy, but not on iPhone or iPad because FirePlay is flash based.  The Crossfire web-app is the only way I’m aware of to stream with iOS, but it’s cumbersome and slow.

Oh, and by the way, while I’ve been singing the praises of Plex lately, it’s no good for use as a streaming music player.  It’s GUI has no playback controls other than pause and a progress slider.  There’s no way to skip songs short of just clicking on a different one, no shuffle play, no volume control, etc.
