Basics

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.

Ampache's usefulness is heavily dependent on being able to extract correct metadata from embedded tags in your files and/or the file name. Ampache is not a media organiser; it is meant to be a tool which presents an already organised collection in a useful way. It assumes that you know best how to manage your files and are capable of choosing a suitable method for doing so.

The recommended and most stable version is git HEAD. Build Status

You get the latest version with recent changes and fixes but maybe in an unstable state from our develop branch. Build Status Scrutinizer Code Quality Codacy Badge Code Climate

Upgrading

If you are upgrading from an older version of Ampache we recommend moving the old directory out of the way, extracting the new copy in its place and then copying the old /config/ampache.cfg.php, /rest/.htaccess, /channel/.htaccess, and /play/.htaccess files if any. All database updates will be handled by Ampache.
