Android media server?

Cristian Cocos 7 years ago • updated by Tim M 7 years ago 1
Not sure I understand what XiiaLive does from reading the info on your website. Does XiiaLive stream music stored on one's Android phone? Can I, hence, use it as an Android media server, to stream my music from my Android device's flash card to other Android devices? I'd very much welcome such an application, and wish to install it on my Logitech Revue (which will be getting Honeycomb soon). Also, as a feature suggestion, how about streaming FLACs?

Well no :)

Xiialive is a streaming app. We use the SHOUTcast database (radio stations) and provide it to all android users. You can also add stations that are not in the database by going to your favorites or opening one from the browser. You can however broadcast your own station on SHOUTcast.com for free.

About the .flac streams... We are going to investigate a little more and see if we need a codec or not. It might already work with the internal stream engine turned on. Flac is only supported on android 3.1 and up though...
Do you have any .flac stations we can use for testing?

Thank you. I am interested in an application that can turn my Android device (Logitech Revue w/upcoming Honeycomb) into a media server, and stream locally stored music files (mp3, flac etc.) onto the Internet. It hence looks to me that XiiaLive is not what I am looking for.
