    Hey guys,

    We are running (@musicmount_org) and we are the developer of the MusicMount app.


    MusicMount is unique as it gives you access to your music on the device as well as over the net (cool cats only).

    Stream to your iPad from a web server on your PC/Mac, NAS or Wi-Fi drive provides an API and tools to access your music from your mobile devices.

    Stream directly to your device. Use Airplay/Bluetooth to listen through your stereo or wireless speaker. Share with your family and friends on your network. If your site is accessible through the internet, you’ll have your entire music collection available, wherever you are!

    1. Use our tool to build your site
    2. Deploy your site to a web server
    3. Get the App and enjoy your music

    No complex protocols, no media server setup, no dependencies other than a web server.

    How does it work?

    The MusicMount tool scans your music folder for MP3 and M4A audio files, extracts metadata like track names, album titles, artists, genres, cover art, etc. It then computes an album-centric model and writes a static web site consisting of JSON and image files.

    Once this is done, you’ll publish your site to a web server. Your MusicMount site can be hosted on a PC/Mac, NAS, Raspberry Pi or even on a wireless drive.

    Check the tool documentation for details and step-by-step tutorials.

    You are now ready to access your MusicMount site with the MusicMount app.

    The MusicMount App

    Out of the box you can browse and play the music stored on your iPhone/iPad. MusicMount presents your library in an intuitive and well organized interface:

    • Navigate albums by album artist, artist and title
    • Filter items by genre, search by name/title
    • Play an entire disk or individual tracks
    • Edit the playlist, rearrange or remove items
    • Graphic/iPod equalizer, gapless playback, Airplay, ...

    Your remote site(s) will be seamlessly integrated into MusicMount:

    • Switch between multiple mounts (your device and remote sites)
    • Mix tracks from several mounts in your playlist
    • Access very large music libraries (works well with 10,000 albums)


    The (universal) MusicMount app is available on the AppStore.

    Furthermore, MusicMount 1.5 is now available on the App Store. This version adds the "Tracks" tab. You can now search your entire music library by track title!

    Ipad app error message


    I just download the java application, chose the music folder and started the server. When I open the ipad app, go to manage accounts, I can see the site and select it. So far everything is ok, but when in edit window, after clicking in Save, I get this message:

    Verification Error
    A server with the specified hostname could not be found.
    Save anyway?

    I clicked Yes. But I can't access the music. The list still empty.
    Please, could you help me solve this out?

    Felipe, probably the Bonjour service posted the wrong host name. Please edit the site URL and replace the host part with the correct (resolvable) name or the IP address of your PC/Mac.

    Thanks for the quick reply.
    I just changed the name for the real IP address as you said and it works.
    Really thanks for the help.

    MusicMount Live Command

    There's now a "live" command to quickly launch a server without generating a static site. This is the easiest way to get things going, to temporarily mount music from iTunes, stored on a thumb drive, etc.

    See this blog post for additional information.
