While there are many ways to stream music from your computer, most of them require you to do some setup and configuration, or require you to pay a fee. If you are looking for a way to stream music for free and with little or no setup, then AudioGalaxy could jolly well be the one you are looking for.
AudioGalaxy claims itself as a cloud player, but it is really more than that. It allows you to play your music in the cloud (from any browser) and also able to stream to mobile devices (currently Android and iOS devices). Best of all, there is no need to upload all your music to the cloud. No syncing or copying etc. You just stream from the existing music library in your computer.
AudioGalaxy is very easy to use. There is almost zero setup required.
Go to AudioGalaxy and sign up for an account.
Once you have completed the registration, download and install the AudioGalaxy helper (currently only available for Windows and Mac, though it is said that the Windows version works in Linux under WINE).
Once the AudioGalaxy helper is up and running, you should see your collection of music appears in the AudioGalaxy site. You can then create your playlist and play your music in the browser.
Sign in to the app and you will see your music collection in the phone. Just like any music player, you can view by artists, albums, genre and add songs to playlist.
You can then play the songs you want and even set it in repeat or shuffle mode.
All in all, this has to be one of the easiest way to stream your music. Almost zero setup and it works out of the box. You don’t even need to install iTunes or any other media player to get it working. One thing though, to be able to stream your music, the host computer needs to be running and connected to the Web at all the time. You also need internet connection on your mobile device to access the music. Other than that, this is almost perfect. What do you think?
