Subsonic Server Sharing? Browse other people's collections?

Postby Mangraa » Sat Sep 18, 2010 10:31 pm

I'm not sure if "sharing" is quite the word, but it started with S, so it works for now. I apologize if this has already been asked/discussed/torn down/etc., but in a somewhat cursory search online, I could not find any sort of list or online group for Subsonic users (minus the one) with the intention/option of sharing access to each others' servers.

I'm ignoring the whole legal part for now (just disable downloading or something) and/or bandwidth issues (server operators' discretion), but is there such an online community/would people be interested in starting one up somewhere, somehow? Essentially just sharing music via SubSonic... pretty straightforward I would imagine.

So.. how about it? Thoughts?

I would be happy to share if i could get the same HQ music i have stribed to aquire. (FLAC/ALAC rips in CD or higher, correct tags and album art)

And they would have to have a descent connection (i have 30mbit)

I would too. Mostly classical (am an orchestral trombonist) and mid-higher quality. Wish I learned all about high quality encoding when I was a wee one getting into digital music.

I'd be willing to share, but my upstream bitrate is pretty minimal at 1Mbit.

I don't know where you are, but that is a pretty stringent requirement. It isn't even possible to get a 30Mbit upstream connection where I live, let alone for it to be common.

I hate to be a buzz kill, but ...

1) If too many people are connecting, no one will be able to use the server because there won't be enough bandwidth.

2) I'm pretty sure "sharing" your music will be illegal wherever you are.

3) Posting login/password is never a good idea as anyone can login if the info is valid.

I am up for sharing, but my experience has been that there are always more moochers than anything. So it's not worth it to me.

THe intention here isn't that it should be open to everyone, but share your collection with maybe 1-3 people who have the same taste in music, at leat that is what i'm thinking.
