Ampache on Cloudjiffy

Ampache is a web-based audio/video streaming application and file manager allowing you to access your music & videos from anywhere, using almost any internet-enabled device.

Ampache’s usefulness is heavily dependent on being able to extract correct metadata from embedded tags in your files and/or the file name. Ampache is not a media organizer; it is meant to be a tool that presents an already organized collection in a useful way. It assumes that you know best how to manage your files and are capable of choosing a suitable method for doing so.
