This is a player for your own music, not a streaming service
Euterpe is a music streaming software you can run yourself. It will give you access to your music everywhere you go. Either via its built-in web UI or via any of its clients. You could run it on your home computer, laptop or on a deticated server.
An elegant HTML5 web folder player for parties and/or private music collections, with a playlist system that all players should have had. It does not use a database (so it's alway up-to-date), but can easily handle folders with 25,000 songs or more.
