...or let AmpJuke run as a regular jukebox or online radio station where all users listens to (and requests) the same music. Simultaneously.
Besides managing and streaming your music collection, AmpJuke can fetch album covers/images/lyrics automatically.
AmpJuke has several modules included that hooks up to various API's (last.fm and the Echonest f.ex.), which takes care of this automatically.
AmpJuke performs well, - even on rather old/slow equipment.
If AmpJuke is unknown to you, then you might want to take a quick look at the features, the comprehensive documentation and/or the requirements.

14-08-2014: AmpJuke 0.8.8: API updates
So, it’s been almost a year - again - since last release.
AmpJuke 0.8.8 is available for download.
Unlike earlier releases, I will update the documentation later to reflect what’s changed/new.
However, a brief description of changes is available in the changelog, as usual.
The two most important changes are related to two of the API’s AmpJuke uses (heavily):
- Last.fm decided sometime in the past to modify the way images from performers/artists are retrived using their API. After the modification, AmpJuke suddenly couldn’t retrieve images from related performers/artists.
- The Echonest introduced four new parameters in their “fingerprinting” of music tracks. I somehow missed that announcement - or The Echonest simply didn’t inform (enough) about it…
Anyway, the new parameters are: liveness, speechiness, acousticness and valence. This makes “fingerprinting” of your music collection even more detailed, and will enhance the listening experience, - provided you setup access to Echonest's API.
30-09-2013: AmpJuke 0.8.7: Improvements
A little later compared to the yearly, earlier releases I'm proud to announce that AmpJuke version 0.8.7 is available for download. As seen in the changelog, this is a release with improvements in a lot of areas.
For starters, I've introduced a "you might also like" list of (similar) tracks when adding something to a favorite list, as seen in this example:
...this is something that relies on configuration and "fingerprinting" of your music collection using the Echonest API. There's a lot of math behind this, so please read the beforementioned FAQ-entry and - if anything is still unclear - write your question in the forum.
Talking about the Echonest API: If you have it configured on your own box, there's also an opportunity to search and build favorite lists consisting of tracks with more or less identical "fingerprint".
It's done using AmpJuke's advanced search, and enables you (or your users) to adjust one or several of the parameters (BPM-, Energy-, Year-range etc. or a combination) in order to search for "similar" tracks with more or less identical "fingerprint":
Besides that, a number of other improvments have been made - here's an example of a tracklist appearing when doing a "mouseover" on an album-image:
So - go ahead - download, install, and start enjoying hosting and streaming your own music - either as a personal service (every user listens to his/her own choices) or using the "jukebox mode" (every user listens to the same music).
23-08-2012: Community (forum) is finally online again
After a long time where the old forum was left in a state of limbo, I have finally found the time (and the code) to start a new community (forum).
You'll find a link to the community in the menu to the left, - or right here.
The old forum is still online as a kind of reference. If you've registered in the old forum, you need to register again. Sorry for the inconvenience.
