Hi peoples!

I’m on Apple Music but I want to expand my setup with music hosting but I have no idea how to approach it. Right now I have nothing and know nothing haha. So if you had a guide or would like to share your setup that would be awesome :)

Everything from a player, through downloader, to organiser and whatever else is needed. I heard that lidarr works in Albums, which I usually don’t use. I’m a “I hear a song, I like it, I save it, forget the author or album” kind of person 😅

Or maybe it’s not worth it at all I don’t know haha

Thanks :)

    My current setup is to have all of my music hosted on my Jellyfin server and streamed to whatever device I’m currently using. It can be a player as well as an organizer (kinda). Your setup can be as simple or a complicated as you want.

    For iOS I recommend FinAmp as a good music player. FinAmp is ugly but it’s actually quite good. It also is almost useless without a Jellyfin server to connect to. Jellyfin’s web interface is better, but doesn’t play well with iOS killing background apps constantly.

    For discovering music I use a mix of Spotify and ListenBrainz.

    And finally for acquiring music, Band Camp is usually my first stop, followed by Amazon. spotdl is a good app for downloading songs from your Spotify playlists to your storage nas, but the legality of it varies.
