Subsonic is designed to handle very large music collections (many thousand albums). By using transcoder plug-ins, Subsonic supports on-the-fly conversion and streaming of virtually any audio format, including FLAC, APE, WMA, Musepack, WavPack, Shorten, and OptimFROG.
If you have constrained bandwidth, you may set an upper limit for the bitrate of the music streams. Subsonic will then automatically resample the music to a suitable bitrate. In addition to being a streaming media server, Subsonic works very well as a local jukebox. The intuitive Web interfaces, as well as search and index facilities, are optimized for efficient browsing through large media libraries.
What's new in this version:
Version 4.8 improved speed of tag editing, added Podcast methods, and fixed a bug in getAlbumList which caused it to return non-albums in some cases.
