Ampache is a free software Web-based Audio file manager / web Media Server.

Ampache is a free software Web-based Audio file manager / web Media Server. The name is a play on the two words Apache and Amplifier. It was originally written to take advantage of Apache's Mod_mp3 but has since been adapted to use its own streaming method.

Ampache's Mascot is a squirrel called Fraz. It was originally drawn by Kirsten Petersen and later digitized by Ben Shields. In 2008 Fraz was redesigned by Agnès Champavier

Ampache was released in 2001. Its original author, Scott Kveton went on to create the OSUOSL at Oregon State University and passed off Developmental lead to Karl Vollmer who has been responsible for it since early 2003.

Ampache is a web based audio/video streaming application and file manager allowing you to access your music & videos from anywhere, using almost any internet enabled device.

Extensions / APIs

Ampache also provides an API for pulling out meta data in the form of XML documents. There are many methods supported in the API in which to access Ampache data. Originally created for use with Amarok2, but can also be used to create other front-ends to Ampache.
