forked-daapd is an iTunes-compatible media server, originally intended
as a rewrite of Firefly Media Server (also known as mt-daapd).
It supports a wide range of audio formats, can stream video to iTunes,
XBMC and other compatible clients, has support for Apple's Remote
iPhone/iPod application and can stream music to AirPlay devices like
the AirPort Express.
It also features RSP support for Roku's SoundBridge devices and MPD support for
Music Player Daemon clients.
Built-in, on-the-fly decoding support enables serving popular free music
formats like FLAC, Ogg Vorbis or Musepack to those clients that do not
otherwise support them.
