Yesterday and today in the morning I tried to understand what Libre FM/GNU FM is all about. I managed to install it on a server but didn’t got the idea what it’s doing (now I know). I started to research about scrobbling, music data, last.fm, Ampache, API, mp3, ogg, m4a … and all these music streaming services and buzzwords. Then I thought
there must be some open source software to listen to music stored on my server
I played around with ownCloud, their music app, several clients like Tomahawk … I doesn’t work.
Tried to connect ownCloud music (Linux) via Ampache API with Tomahawk player (OSX & Android). Tried a lot, doesn’t work :( now gardening

It was frustrating so I decided to go in the garden and work on my “Rock” :)
After 5 hours of work, I was happy again.
Now I’m listening another two hours to my music and I’m even more happy :)
