HOWTO : Favourite songs anywhere with Subsonic, Ubuntu and Android

Subsonic is a Music Streamer that running on Linux, Windows and Mac OSX. Smarthphone such as Android and iPhone are also supported. You can even stream your songs over internet. You can control and listen your songs via your javascript enabled browser.

It is the excellent music streamer that I can found in the market. It runs very smoothly and flawlessly on 3G mobile network. However, it is not iTune (or DAAP) compatible.

Installation and setting up of Subsonic on computer and smartphone are very easy and user-friendly.
