Last updated on January 6th, 2023 at 09:13 pm

Euterpe is self-hosted streaming service for music. Formerly known as “HTTPMS (HTTP Media Server)”. Listen to your music library from everywhere. Once set up you won’t need anything but a browser. Your very own Spotify service, which you have full control over. Euterpe will let you browse through and listen to your music over HTTP(s).

Code Source: GitHub / Website: Here / Demo: Here

Skip to Docker Run Code / Skip to Compose & Portainer Code

  • Simple: The Euterpe Media Server is just a single small binary. There is no need to deal with webserver extensions for dynamic languages, running databases or copying source files around!
  • Nimble: Euterpe has very small footprint so it could easily co-exist with many other services on the same machine. It values your RAM and CPU as much as you do. So it lets you have it for yourself.
  • Formats: All common file formats which you might have will be no problem for Euterpe. This includes (but is not limited to) mp3, flac, ogg, oga, wav, m4a.
  • Artwork: Album artwork and artists’ images could be autmatically downloaded from the internet or curated by you manually. So that you could see your favourite faces and familiar covers while listening to this great tune.
