Music Servers

MPD is the oldest and probably most "powerful," it separates client and server, so it can look different depending on client. Lots of stuff has been built on it. it's the one I've spent the most time with.

Ampache - A lot of folks mentioned this one: Early on, I ended up not using it because it required you to arrange your music in folders in *it's* own way. Not sure if it still does that?

Mstream: This is the one I showed in class and what I use. It just works, both with "tags" and files/folders however you want them.

Koel - never touched this one but it looks impressive!
