Navidrome: A Self-Hosted Music Streaming Solution for Great Music Experience

5/5 - (50 votes)

Are you tired of relying on music streaming services like Spotify, Deezer, or Apple Music for your music needs? Do you wish to host your music yourself and stream it directly from your home without storage constraints or monthly subscriptions?

Navidrome is the solution you need! It’s an open-source, self-hosting music streaming server that enables you to access your music collection from any web browser or mobile device. With just a few clicks, you can install Navidrome on your computer or Raspberry Pi and enjoy your favorite songs without any limits.

But be careful, if you invite your mother-in-law to your house and she asks you to play her favorite Sardou album, you won’t be able to use the excuse “Sorry, pretty mother, I canceled my Spotify subscription.” anymore

Navidrome operates simply: after a quick installation, it indexes all the audio files stored on your hard drive and makes them available via the web interface. You can create playlists, rate and favorite your favorite songs, albums, and artists, and share them with your friends and family. A demo is available if you want to test it out (username: demo/password: demo).

In just a few clicks, you can create a fantastic musical atmosphere to impress your friends during your next “karaoke conference” evening.

Navidrome is compatible with all Subsonic clients (via the API), allowing you to access your music from a wide range of third-party applications for iOS, Android, or your computer. The Navidrome server supports most audio formats and can transcode files on the fly to provide a seamless playback experience even on the slowest internet connections.

It’s a continually evolving project with regular updates, so don’t hesitate to contribute if you can.
