Setting up a streaming music server

Though setting up a streaming server is dependent on the software and hardware
platform selected, we include an example configuration here that is compatible with
Ubuntu linux, using the free GNU mp3 daemon for your convenience.

Download the GNU MP3 streamer from http://www.gnu.org/software/gnump3d/

The .tar.gz file can be downloaded from:


Alternatively download from:


Extract the archive and install the software:

tar xvfz ../gnump3d­3.0.tar.gz 

sudo make install 

Configure the music location, port and other options by editing the following configuration file, then run the server:

sudo vi /etc/gnump3d/gnump3d.conf

sudo /usr/bin/gnump3d


Configure the music collection on the streaming server by pointing your browser to:

http: //<ip>:<port>

Configure a streaming category as in section 4.8.1:

/usr/bin/mpg123 ­q ­s ­­mono ­r 8000 ­f 8192 ­b 100 ­@ http://:/recurse.m3u 

Warning: If the above application entry is incorrectly configured, applying might
result in the apply freezing up. To fix this, restart the Com.X, correct the application
entry, or remove the streaming music on hold category and apply.
