Streaming Music via ITunes server - must be "apple" format ?

The iTunes Server app can turn your NAS into your home's audio and video streaming center. It allows you to share music and movies from your NAS with computers in the same network environment.

Streaming Music via ITunes server - must be "apple" format ?

Postby tomd » Wed Jan 22, 2014 9:23 am

hi all,

I have a 202te and I'm tossing up what to do with my music collection.

Music is all in FLAC format.

should I use the iTunes Server to store my music?
And if so, should I convert FLAC to lossless Apple for best results? I don't mind doing that but if there's an alternative (and similar results product) then I'd be keen.

Or can I store in FLAC format on the iTunes Server and stream?

More Info: I also purchased an Airport Express to stream to my Hi Fi which sits in another room...

In an ideal world, I'd love the iTunes server to be the place I store my data, and stream to various devices around the home, but fear I could get trapped in the "apple space".
I also want to control playback via an android tablet, and even my android phones...don't have iPhone or iPad.

Is there another option, similar to iTunes I could use instead?
which could also stream to my Airport Express?

Thanks for any info.
tomd
