Now I'm finally able to stream my music collection via as a streaming server.

I'd prefer with their modern UI, but as its still alpha it lacks some functions that are important to me like .
That really is handy when it comes to saving mobile data. (Yeah...)
It was quite a mess tho to get flac > ogg transcoding to work with airsonic.

Airsonic isn't that pretty and less modern, but quite stable.

@maximpistos hi there :)

Funkwhale does support transcoding, though it's not configurable at the user level know (in the web app it's done invisibly from the user if you try to stream a file in a format not supported by your browser)

Funkwhale also support transcoding in the subsonic API, and should honor whatever format/bitrate your client requests.

Not saying that to make you switch or anything, esp. as you seem satisfied with yoir current setup, but I wanted to clarify 😃

@agateblue
Hey, thanks for stepping in! :)

I didn't specify that I'm rather looking for downsampling than transcoding, my bad.

According to
docs.funkwhale.audio/users/app
It is not possible to do
"Transcoding/streaming with different bitrates"
Which seems related to downsampling, right?

@maximpistos oh, our documentation is outdated then, because we do support downsampling as well!

For instance, this download the source track:

open.audio/api/v1/listen/155c9

And this download a downsampled version:

open.audio/api/v1/listen/155c9

It should also work with Subsonic clients if your client support the feature (I know DSub does, at least) :)

@agateblue oh, great!
So I can cross of one personal blocker of my list:) Getting exited about switching!

If I may ask: how do you handle large music collections with in-place import when meta data/tags get updated?

@maximpistos well, on that front, the situation wasn't brilliant until recently, but I've merged a contribution a few weeks ago that implement support for updating tags when source files change.

Our documentation reflect this already (docs.funkwhale.audio/admin/imp), but the change itself will be released in Funkwhale 0.21.1 (though you can try it by using the master or the develop branch).

@agateblue great news!!
Will check it out as soon as it lands in

In the meanwhile I make sure to donate to both @yunohost and @funkwhale

@maximpistos

The maintainer of the YunoHost package withdrawed from the maintainance, so I'm not sure when it will be up-to-date again unfortunately :/
